Managing organization users

This topic explains how to create and manage organization users. You must be an organization administrator to perform these tasks.

What are organization users?

Organization users are given explicit permission by the organization administrator to create, read, edit, and/or delete entities in an Apigee Edge organization. Permissions are role-based, where a role conveys a specific, targeted set of permissions. This permission scheme is also called role-based access control, or RBAC for short.

What Edge entities do organization users work with?

Organization users interact with a number of entities, including:

  • API proxies
  • API products
  • Developer apps
  • Developers
  • Environments (Trace tool sessions and deployments)
  • Custom reports (Analytics)

The degree of interaction permitted depends on the role or roles that are assigned to the user by the organization administrator. See also Assigning roles.

Viewing users

In the New Edge experience, you view organization users by selecting Admin > Users.

In Classic Edge, you view organization users by selecting Admin > Organization Users.

For each user, you can view:

  • Name: The name of the user you entered when you created the user.
  • Primary email: The email address you entered when you created the user.
  • Role: The role of the user, which determines the degree of access. By default, all users have a user role that gives them full access to all features in Apigee. See also Assigning roles.

Adding users

To add an organization user:

  1. Log in to the Edge management UI as an organization administrator.
  2. Select Admin > Users.
    If you are not an organization administrator, this menu does not appear.
  3. Click + User. The "Add a User" screen appears.
  4. Enter the user's email address.
  5. Select the roles you want to assign to the user.
    You can add more than one role to a user.
  6. Click Save.

If the user already has an Apigee account, they will see the new organization after logging into Apigee Edge. If the new user doesn't yet have an Apigee account, they are sent email instructions for account activation, password reset, and logging in.

Editing a user profile and assigned roles

You can edit a user profile and add one or more roles to a user when you create a new user or edit an existing user. See also Assigning roles.

To edit a user profile and assigned roles:

  1. Select Admin > Users.
  2. Click the name of an existing user.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. You can modify only your own first and last name, not those of other users.
  5. Add or remove roles:
    • To add a role, click in the Roles field and select a new role from the drop-down.
    • To remove a role, click the x associated with the role.
  6. Repeat the previous step to add additional roles, if desired.
  7. Click Save.

Removing users from an organization

To remove a user from an organization, you must be an organization administrator.

  1. Select Admin > Users.
  2. Click Remove in the Actions column associated with the user that you want to remove.
