How do I add users to my workspace or source?

There are two levels of permission in Segment:

  1. Workspace Owners
  2. Source Collaborators

Workspace Owners

A workspace owner has access to all settings and sources inside of a workspace.

Owners must sign up for a personal account before gaining access to the workspace they were added to. They’ll get an invite email if they don’t have a Segment account yet.

To add new owners to a workspace, go to your workspace settings at https://segment.com/YOUR_WORKSPACE/settings/team. You can also access this from the account dropdown in the menu when you are logged into your account.

Remember, every owner in a workspace has access to every source within that workspace.

Source Collaborators

You can invite source collaborators to any source(s) to which you have access. An invitation gives the user complete access to that source and its settings but not the ability to see other sources in your account or workspace. The user would also not be able to see any workspace, account, or billing details.

To add new owners to a source, go to your source settings, then collaborators.

Collaborators must sign up for a personal account before gaining access to the sources to which they were invited. They’ll get an invite email if they don’t have a Segment account yet.
