Parsec for Teams Admin Roles

Assign Admin Roles to give access to specific functionality in the Parsec for Teams admin dashboard. Multiple roles can be assigned to the same user in which case functionality is enabled when any of the assigned roles allow it. 

Roles can be either Global or scoped to a Group. All teams can assign predefined Global roles. Enterprise teams can also create custom Global and Group roles.

Global roles

Global roles grant administrative controls over the entire team.

Predefined roles

There are three predefined roles available for all teams. These roles can be assigned to team members but they can not be edited.

Super Admin

The Super Admin role has ALL permissions. The user who creates a team is automatically assigned the Super Admin role and every team must always have at least one Super Admin. If there is only one Super Admin you must assign a second one before you can remove the first. In addition to the configurable permissions there is some functionality that is only available to super admins.

Only super admins can:

  • Create and assign admin roles
  • Generate API keys
  • Re-generate the Team Computer Key

Admin

Admins can manage team members, groups, team computers and guest access invites. For a detailed list of permissions see the Admin Roles page.

Guest Access Manager

Guest Access Managers only have the Manage Guest Access Invites permission.

Manage Guest Access Invites Create Guest Access invitations using Guest Access Credits (balance will be visible), and manage guest sessions. All Team Computers with Guest Access enabled will be visible to the admin.

Custom global roles

Parsec for Teams Enterprise customers can create, duplicate, and edit roles. The three predefined roles are still not editable. If you need to tweak them you should instead create custom roles.

Group roles

Group Admin permissions are scoped to only allow actions taken on the group itself, or on users belonging to the group. Group Admins can not yet manage Team Computers assigned to the group.

Permission Description
Invite Team Members

Invite people to your team, using your team's available seats. Group admins can only create team invites pre-assigned to their group.

Creating Group Roles

When creating a Group Role you must select which group it is associated with. This can be changed at any time but a role can only be associated with one group. To give a user admin privileges for multiple groups, create multiple Group Admin Roles and assign them to the user.
