Roles

Overview

A role is used to give a user access to resources within a workspace. Roles are additive, and can be combined to configure a custom policy for a Team Member or a Group. A policy is at least one role plus one resource applied to an individual user or group.

Global Roles

All Segment workspaces have the following roles, regardless of account type.

  • Workspace Owner Owners have full read and edit access to everything in the workspace, including sources, destinations, add-on products, and settings. Owners have full edit access to all team permissions.

  • Source admin Source admins have edit access to assigned source(s), to the settings for that source, to any connected streaming destinations, schema, and live data from the source in the debugger. A user with the Source Admin role can be granted access to either all current and future Sources, or a specific list of Sources, or Sources with a specific Label (BT only).

PII Access

The Segment App does not show detected Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to workspace members if the information matches specific expected formats for PII. When PII Access is turned “off”, detected PII is masked based on red or yellow default matchers and any custom matchers defined in the Privacy Portal.

Workspace Owners can grant specific individuals or groups access to PII from their Access Management settings. PII Access only applies to the resources a user or user group has access to; it does not expand a user’s access beyond the original scope. All Workspace Owners have PII access by default.

Roles for managing Personas destinations

Personas destinations are not included in the Personas roles by default. Users with Personas roles (including Personas Admin) need additional permissions for each Personas space they work with in order to manage that Personas space’s destinations.

Grant these users Source Admin on the source named Personas (personas space name) to grant them access to the Personas destinations for that Personas space.

Roles for connecting resources

To connect two resource instances, you must have access to both. This access can either be granted to all resources, or to the specific resources you want to connect.

To connect a source to warehouse you must have Source Admin and Warehouse Admin access for the source and the warehouse.

To connect source to tracking plan requires Source Admin and Tracking Plan Admin access for the source and the tracking plan.

Roles for Protocols Transformations

To view transformations, you only need Source Read-only, either for all Sources or the specific Sources using Protocols.

To create or edit transformations you must have either Source Admin for all Sources, or for the specific Sources used with Protocols.
