About Users

πŸ“˜

Note:

Users are added in Automation Cloud from Cloud Portal's Users page. You cannot add users to an Orchestrator service from the service itself. See here details on how to manage users in the portal.

You can manage user permissions directly in each Orchestrator service. See here details on how to manage user roles in Cloud Orchestrator. You can also make use of the permissions granted by the out of the box user groups defined in Automation Cloud.

A user is an entity with access-dependent capabilities whose view and control of Automation Cloud rely on the assigned access rights. Users can be created by inviting them to join an organization. To accept an invite, a person must click the link within the received email and sign up with the same email address and a password or with a Google, Microsoft, or LinkedIn account. Once signed up, the user has access to the features within Automation Cloud's Portal and services according to its assigned role.

Organization Level Roles


Organization level roles enable you to control user access within the Cloud Portal. Based on their roles, users can or cannot perform actions or view information within the portal.

🚧

Important!

All invited users have access to all the services within an organization. However, the level of access for each user is determined by their roles within each specific service. See Service Level Roles for more information.

The following 2 roles are available for the users at organization level:

Organization Administrator

This role grants access to every organization or service level feature. A user with this role can perform all administrative actions at organization level, like creating or updating tenants, managing users, viewing audit logs, and so on. There can be multiple users with this role. All users within the Administrator group are granted this role. Click here for information about user groups.

It has the following permissions, which cannot be changed.

Service Level Roles


Service level roles control access rights within each service. The permissions for each service are managed within the service itself, and not in Cloud Portal. You can explicitly assign a role for every user or you can use user groups.

User Groups

User groups are used to simplify access administration. Access rights assigned to a group are automatically inherited by all users in that group. A user gets the union of all permissions assigned to the groups they are a member of.
The group membership of a user is managed in Cloud Portal. User group permissions are configured in each individual service. For example, learn about users and user groups in Orchestrator services.

  Overview

Adding users to a group grants them access to all services which reference that group. The level of access to a service/folder is determined by the roles assigned to that group in the service.

  • When a user tries to access certain services, the system makes an access-permit decision depending on the user's membership.
  • When a user tries to access or use certain resources in a service, the system makes an access-permit decision based on the roles of the user, which can be either inherited from the group or granted explicitly.

  Default User Groups

Default groups reduce the need to specify explicit access rights by providing predefined permissions for typical scenarios.
UiPath provides 4 default user groups that come with a default set of roles each at the service level: Administrators, Automation Users, Automation Developers, Everyone. These groups are automatically referenced in newly created Automation Cloud services, and they are configured with a set of default permissions. Note that, for services created before the user groups feature was launched, the permissions are not changed. Service administrators can configure permissions for these groups as they desire.

  Custom User Groups

If you need more than the 4 access levels provided by default by UiPath, you can create and tailor your own user groups. Unlike default user groups, custom groups need to be added manually in the service to ensure the correct mapping between the group membership of a user and the corresponding role in the service.

  Roles

User roles can be changed at the service level by users with corresponding permissions.

For example, users with the Orchestrator Administrator role can create additional roles or modify existing ones if needed.
Read more about Orchestrator roles here. The following table has the mapping between group memberships, organization level roles, and Orchestrator service level roles:

Everyone

1 Note that the roles are assigned at Shared modern folder level if it exists.

Β 

Explicit User Assignment

If you want to granularly control the access a user has in a certain service, say without adding the entire group to the service, you can add them explicitly.
Read here how to add a user in an Orchestrator service.

Without User Groups

If you don't want to work with user groups and preserve past behavior, assign your users to the Everyone group. This way, they are granted User role within Cloud Portal, and no role whatsoever within each of your services. To grant them service level roles, assign them explicitly the desired roles within each service.
