Silktide uses the Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) permissions model for user permissions. Learn more about RBAC.

Default roles

When you first start with Silktide, you'll notice a few pre-set roles. These are designed to help you get started, but you can also create your own roles to match your organization's needs.

Everyone role

This role includes all users. It's the starting point for permissions, giving basic access to everyone. By default, this role can do things like watch tutorial videos and use the standalone inspector. They won't see any website reports unless you decide to give them that access.

Administrators role

This role has complete access to all platform features. They can see everything, add or remove websites, create Reports, and manage users and their permissions.

Creating your own roles

To create a custom role, select your profile picture in the top navigation bar, then go to Settings > Roles. Here you'll have a list of all existing permissions roles.

To create a new role, select "+ New role" at the top of the page. Tick the boxes for any permissions required and save your changes.

Users who are added to your role will be granted the permissions set, in addition to those inherited by the Everyone role and any user-specific permissions.
