    What are the Owner, Team Administrator, and Member roles?

      Article Summary

      Organization employees are divided into three roles in the Control Panel: Owner, Team Administrator, and Member.

      Here’s what each role means:

      • Owners are responsible for managing the organization’s security. They can see the All Members list, create rules, assign roles, centrally implement security features. Owners can also configure gateways, servers, remote access solutions and manage billing all through NordLayer’s Control Panel.

      • Team Administrators are responsible for adding and removing Members from a team that they’re assigned to. They can also see all virtual private gateways that are available for the team they administer.

      • Members are those that belong to a specific organization and different teams. Owners and Team Administrators can invite and delete them from the organization and teams they’re added to, as well as add or limit functionality.

      • Team Administrators are vital when it comes to managing large organizations because Owners can give them team administering rights without compromising on security.
      • Team Administrators cannot invite new members to the NordLayer organization itself. They can choose Members only from the All Members list managed by Owners.
      • An organization can have multiple owners and team administrators.
