Organization roles

In Contentful, roles are used to grant permissions for a group of users to see and perform tasks related to their job. There are organization roles and space roles. Organization roles are assigned when a user is invited to an organization. By default, the user who creates the organization is assigned the Owner role. Every user in an organization needs, and can only have, one organization role. As an owner or admin, you can manage the organization roles of users from the Users tab und Organization settings. The four organization roles are:

  • Owner - can manage everything at the organization level. There must always be at least one owner in an organization.

  • Admin - can manage everything at the organization level except billing and subscription.

  • Developer - can manage organizational development entities and can access spaces and teams they are added to.

  • Member - can only access spaces and teams they are added to.
