Assign User Roles via Groups

Last Updated: Feb. 26, 2024

Streamline user management – role-based and data scope access – with Groups.

Overview

Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)

Coralogix users enjoy role-based access based on their membership in one or more Groups, each of which is assigned one or more roles.

Data Scope

In addition, by using Groups, organizations can control the scope of user data by limiting access to particular applications and subsystems.

Only Organization and Platform administrators have the predefined permissions to manage Groups.

Create a Group

STEP 1. Access your settings in the upper right-hand corner of the Coralogix toolbar.

STEP 2. In the left-hand sidebar, click Groups. A list of existing groups will appear.

Step 3. Click Create New Group.

STEP 4. Enter the new group details.

Group Name & Description

Enter a name and description for the group.

Select Role

Select the role for users in the group.

Application & Subsystem Scope

Add applications and subsystems to which the group users may have access. For example, choosing the application “AWS” will give group members access to AWS-related information only.

Notes:

  • You can also choose a different filter type to include several applications that start and end or include a search term.
  • If no applications or subsystems are added, users in the group will have access to all applications and subsystems.

STEP 5. Click CREATE.

Migrate Groups from Legacy to Custom Roles

Legacy roles are predefined system roles from our sunsetted role management system. Existing customers must migrate the legacy roles assigned to their users to system and custom roles to prevent a loss of role-based access for your users.

Select an existing Group from your list and modify the role in the Select Role drop-down menu to do so. Unselect the legacy role and choose a different role in its place.

System Roles

Coralogix offers seven predefined system roles.

System RoleDescription
Org AdminOrganization admins manage all teams and user access and settings. They can also manage and configure all Coralogix resources. They have full access to billing information and can revoke API keys. They can also promote users with fewer permissions to administrators.
Platform AdminPlatform admins have identical permissions to Org admins, except for management and read-only access to organization settings.
Data AdminData admins can view and modify all Coralogix monitoring features. They may not view and manage organization settings and are limited in their access to team settings.
Observability LeadObservability leads can view all Coralogix monitoring features but are limited in their management and configuration permissions. They may not view and manage organization settings and are limited in their access to team settings.
Standard UserRead-only users do not have access to make changes within Coralogix. This comes in handy when you’d like to share specific read-only views with a client or when a member of one team needs to share a dashboard or other resource with someone outside their team.
Read-Only UserRead-only users do not have access to make changes within Coralogix. This comes in handy when you’d like to share specific read-only views with a client, or when a member of one team needs to share a dashboard or other resource with someone outside their team.
No Access UserUsers have no permissions. Use this system role as a baseline to create custom roles with limited permissions.
Security UserSecurity users can perform daily security tasks and manage related configurations, such as incident investigation, alert configuration, security posture visibility, and extension deployment.
