Organization Roles

  • reference
    Use organization roles in Couchbase Capella to manage the privileges of your organization’s users.

    Every user account in Couchbase Capella has an organization role that determines the privileges they have for Capella UI access inside that organization.

    For example, a user who’s an Organization Member cannot view any of the billing information inside the Capella UI.

    Use projects and project roles to grant more specific privileges and access to databases, data, and data tools. Use database access credentials to manage your programmatic and application-level access to a database’s data.

    In the v4 Management API, databases are called clusters.

    The following table describes the available organization roles and their privileges.
