Manage Accounts & Access

For information on how to access manage your own account, as well as how to manage users within your projects in the platform.

User permissions explained

User permissions required: 'View users' OR 'Modify users'


Below is a table of the different user permissions in the platform and a description of what each permission empowers the user to do. Permissions are granted at the project level, so it's likely users will have and require different permissions for different projects, depending on their role.

Please Note: To be able to view the different permissions they or others have, users will need the 'View users' or 'Modify users' permissions. These permissions can be viewed in the Projects page as shown in the section above.

Permission Types:


  • Sources permissions – refer to the data uploaded by your company for analysis
  • Datasets permissions – give access to datasets, which are named collections of labels, entities and training data
  • Streams permissions – give access to streams, which allow actions to be taken on newly ingested data
  • Users permissions – allow individuals to view and/or modify users in their projects
  • Buckets permissions* – give access to buckets, which are containers of raw data items that you can upload
  • Integration permissions* - give access to integrations, which allow connecting other services to the platform
  • Utility permissions* – includes any permissions which don’t fit into any of the other categories


* Please Note: Buckets, integration, and utility permissions (with the exception of upload files) are typically only granted to programmatic users such as development engineers, and are not required for day-to-day use of the platform

[1] To view any data related to a Source, Dataset or Verbatim in the platform requires both ‘View Sources’ and ‘View Labels’ permissions (or their parent permissions)

* 'Triggers' have been renamed to 'Streams' in the platform, to better reflect their functionality.
