Managing Firebolt users

Each user in Firebolt has an email address that serves as the Firebolt username. Each user is also assigned a role that determines the user’s permissions within the account. This topic explains the permissions associated with each user role, followed by instructions for Account Admins for adding and removing users.

Adding users

An Account Admin invites a user to join a Firebolt account. The invitation is sent to the user’s email address, which serves as the user’s Firebolt username after the user accepts the invitation. Account Admins can only invite users with organizational domains, such as you@anycorp.com. Firebolt does not support usernames with personal email addresses, such as me@gmail.com or you@outlook.com. Before sending the invitation, the Account Admin chooses the role associated with the user.

To add a Firebolt user or users to a Firebolt account

  1. In the Firebolt Manager, choose the User Management icon in the navigation pane. If the icon isn’t available, you don’t have Account Admin permissions.

  2. Choose Invite Users.

  3. Under Add emails, enter the business email of the user to invite. Use commas to separate multiple email addresses.

  4. Under assign roles, choose the role to associate with each user listed, and then choose Invite.

An invitation email is sent to the email address(es) that you entered. The invitation has a link to accept the invitation and log in to Firebolt for the first time.

Changing a user’s role

As an Account Admin, you can’t edit a user profile to change a user’s role. To change a user’s role, remove the user, and then invite the user again, selecting the new role when you create the invitation.

Removing users

The Remove users button appears when you select a user from the list in the User Management screen.

To remove users

  1. In the Firebolt Manager, choose the User Management icon in the navigation pane. If the icon isn’t available, you don’t have Account Admin permissions.

  2. Select a user or users from the list, and then choose Remove users.
