Backstage User Roles

Backstage users have two different sets of roles. Users are part of an organization and, for each organization, they are members of one or several events.

Organization roles

As a Backstage user, you are part of one or several organizations. Your role can be either Admin or Member of the organization. A special role, Entitlement Manager, allows you to allocate seats and advanced modules to your workspaces and to download consumption reports. The following table summarizes the rights of each role.
