Choosing a role for a new user

Editor

An editor can make changes as they see fit to the contents of your workspace. If you're inviting your team members to a workspace, this role is ideal for users that plan to create and run tests in the workspace.

📘

Workspace support access

When workspace support access is enabled in your workspace, the mabl Support Team has the same privileges as an editor.

Viewer

A viewer can see the contents of your workspace and trigger local runs. Viewers cannot add, delete, or modify tests or trigger cloud runs.

Owner

Owners have full control over the contents and members of a workspace, including adding members and changing their permissions.

📘

Owner of a workspace

If you create a workspace, you become the owner of that workspace by default.
