Documentation Admin Permissions

Manage Permissions

Owners and Admins can easily grant, modify, and remove access to dashboards and data sources as needed.

  • Owners can grant access to any team or user for any dashboard or data source.
  • Dashboard Admins can grant Viewer, Editor, or Admin access to any user they share a team with, or any team in the organization.
  • Data Source Admins can grant Edit or Admin access to any user they share a team with, or any team in the organization.

Team management in Chartio becomes increasingly important as the number of users grow in your Chartio account. It’s especially important for ensuring access to sensitive dashboards is properly assigned.

We highly recommend assigning access permissions at the team level, not the individual user level. This applies to both dashboard and data source access.
