Before you and your team can start using Apigee Edge, you need to have an account and an organization. Once you have an account and an organization, if you're an administrator, you have access to the Admin tab on Apigee Edge where you can add and modify users. As part of adding or modifying users, you set the user's role.

See Creating an Apigee Edge account for more information on creating Edge accounts.

Setting user roles

In Apigee Edge, user roles form the basis of role-based access, meaning that you can control what functions a person can access by assigning them a role. By default, your role is set based on how you create your account:

  • If you create your own Edge account, your role is set to organization administrator in your organization. If you add users to your organization, you set the user role at the time that you add them. If you are later added to another organization, your role is determined by the administrator of that organization.
  • If an administrator creates your account, your role is determined by the administrator. An organization administrator can later change your role if necessary.

 The following roles and permissions are available by default:

Creating roles

You can configure more complex roles and permissions using the User Roles API. See Role-based access control.

Viewing user data

The Organization Users table on the Admin > Organization Users page lists all of the users attached to the current organization. For each user you can see:

  • Name: The name of the user you entered when you created the user.
  • Primary email: The email address you entered when you created the user.
  • Role: The role of the user, which determines the degree of access. By default, all users have a user role that gives them full access to all features in Apigee.

Adding users

Users of API Services are members of the API team who develop and test the API, or run reports—not external developers. To add an organization user:

  1. In the Edge management UI, while logged in as an organization administrator, select Admin > Organization Users.
  2. Click + User. The "Add a User" screen appears.
  3. Enter the user's First Name, Last Name, and Email.
  4. Select the Role you want to offer to the users.
  5. Click Save.

The First Name, Last Name, and Email Address fields are editable, so if needed, you can change what you initially entered for the user. You can also change the role selection if needed.

Deleting users

There are two ways to delete a user:

  • To remove a user from your account, select the user in the Organization Users table and click Delete. This only removes the user from the current account. If the user is a member of multiple accounts, they remain in the system.
  • To remove a user from Apigee completely, contact Apigee Support.
