User permissions

User permissions

You can assign user permissions at the account, property, and view levels.

To assign permissions:

  1. Click Admin.
  2. Click User Management in the ACCOUNT, PROPERTY, or VIEW column.

Four permissions are available that you can apply singly or in combination:

Manage Users
Can manage account users (add/delete users, assign permissions). Does not include Edit or Collaborate.
Can perform administrative and report-related functions (e.g., add/edit/delete accounts, properties, views, filters, goals, etc., but not manage users), and see report data.

Edit permission is required at the account level to create filters. Edit permission is required at the view level to apply filters.

Includes Collaborate.
Can create personal assets, and share them. Can collaborate on shared assets, for example, edit a dashboard or annotation. Includes Read & Analyze.
Read & Analyze
Can see report and configuration data; can manipulate data within reports (e.g., filter a table, add a secondary dimension, create a segment); can create personal assets, and share them, and see shared assets. Cannot collaborate on shared assets.

Parent permissions are inherited by default (account > property > view). For example, when you set permissions for a user at the account level, that user then has those same permissions for all the properties and views in that account.

Permissions set for a child supercede permissions set for the parent.

As you progress down the hierarchy, you can give more permissions, but not fewer, e.g., if a user has Read & Analyzepermission at the account level, you can then also grant Edit permission at the property or view level; but if a user has Editpermission at the account level, you can’t limit permission to just Read & Analyze at the property level.

To see which users have which permissions, you have a couple of options. From the User Management page at the account, property, or view level:

  • Search for a specific user name to see that user's permissions.
  • Click the Account Permissions column head to sort the list by permissions.
