Role-Based Access Control or RBAC is a permission model that Silktide uses to limit access to parts of the platform based on a user's role within an organization.

It's all about giving users access to the tools and information they need, and nothing more. This is usually done by assigning users to different permission roles.

Default permission roles

Silktide offers several default permission role, such as Account Administrators, Developers, and Content Managers.

Each role has different levels of access to the platform, tailored to the needs of the role and ensuring everyone can do their job without unnecessary distractions.

The key thing to remember is that RBAC allows for a high level of detail when setting permissions. These permissions can be reused across different roles, and users can even have multiple roles.

This gives you a lot of flexibility when deciding who gets access to what. Plus it keeps everything centrally managed, making user management easy.
