Roles and permissions

User roles for both the workspace and project level. Also, how to add or update a member.

Access to groups

Groups is a feature only available for our standard and enterprise license tiers. For more information, please reach out to your Labelbox representative.

Organizations, groups & members

When you sign up for a Labelbox account, Labelbox will assign you an organization. Each organization consists of members with different permissions. Additionally, members can belong to groups. A group is defined as a set of members that share the same project assignments and can be managed together as a single unit rather than individually.

Member roles

Admins can invite additional members to join the organization. Admins can also control how members access certain projects by configuring member roles.

You can specify a member role to limit a member to a certain project or restrict a member to certain actions. And if you wish to add an external workforce, you can limit their access to a specific project; so they won’t be able to view other projects, datasets, or ontologies created by your organization.

Example of a member's detail page from the **Members** tab in **Workspace settings**.

Permission settings

You may set permission levels for each user in one of three ways:

Permission settingDefinition
Organization-wide (or workspace wide)The member will have access to all projects with their default role. This can not be overridden on the project level
Project-based using GroupsThe member will have access to all projects that the Group is assigned to. They will inherit their role from the "Default role" in their user profile.
Project-based using manual assignmentThe member can be manually assigned to specific projects. In this case, the admin can specify their user role or they will inherit their role from their user profile.

Note

Organization-wide and Project-based roles are designed to be mutually exclusive.

Organization-wide or workspace-wide roles

A role assigned at this level will apply to all projects within your organization or workspace if you have multiple workspaces configured. Users cannot be restricted from accessing certain projects at the organization level. If set, the user's project-based roles cannot be modified.

To apply this level of role to the member, you must select the option in the user's profile for "Use this role for all projects".

Project-based roles (via Groups or manual assignment)

Roles at this level are assigned on a project-by-project basis. If set, the user's organization role cannot be modified.

Project-based roles can be assigned via the groups feature or manual assignment.
