Control Panel: Roles and permissions in Vision VMS


Written by NSoft Vision


Vision Video Management System (VMS) offers a flexible user management system that allows you to control who has access to your system and what they can do within it. This article will delve into the four system permission groups or roles in Vision VMS and explain their capabilities.

User role

The User role is the most basic role in Vision VMS. Users have access to the interface, but not to the control panel. They can see all cameras and view them in real-time, manage identities in the directory section, create and export reports, and track the number of people in all locations in real-time in the live report section. This role is ideal for individuals who need to interact with the system but do not require administrative privileges.

Admin role

The Admin role is a step up from the User role. Admins have full access to the control panel, which means they can do everything that regular users can do, plus a lot more. They can edit permission groups, invite members, create locations and cameras, update settings, manage flags, labels, notifications, and more. This role is suitable for individuals who need to manage the system and its settings.

SpaceOwner role

The SpaceOwner role is the highest level of access in Vision VMS. This role has owner rights and is the only person with this role. A space can have only one owner, but you can have as many admins as you want. The only difference between the space owner and the admin is that the space owner has access to the "Space" section within the Control Panel.

Managing roles and permissions

To manage roles and permissions in Vision VMS, you need to access the Control Panel and navigate to the Members section. Here, you can view all existing users, change their status to "Enabled" or "Disabled", and assign them to different permission groups. You can also invite new members by entering their email address, choosing the space for which you’re adding the member, and selecting the preferred role.
