Project Roles and Permissions

In Mixpanel Organizations users have roles in an organization and in a project.

An organization links users, projects, and billing plans together in an account. A project contains event and user data.

The types of organization and project roles a user has should be based on the required permissions users need for specific levels.

This article defines project roles and permissions, and specifies those roles and permissions in Mixpanel features.

For more information on specific organization role permissions, see Organization Roles and Permissions.

 

Projects Roles and Permissions

A project has five roles: owner, admin, messenger, analyst, and consumer.

Your project role will be displayed below the project name in the top left of Mixpanel.

Owner

When users create a project, they own and have complete control over it.

Organization owners and admins have administrative permissions to assume an admin role in a project.

Admin

Project admins have the same set of permissions as project owners. However, they can’t delete or reset the project or manage its security.

Analyst

Project analysts can view and create all Mixpanel reports.

Project analysts can also add and delete bookmarks. However, they can’t create or use messaging features or manage team member roles.

Consumer

Project consumers can view reports. However, they can’t edit or delete existing reports or dashboards, or save their own.

Project consumers can’t create or use messaging features, or manage team member roles.

Messenger

Project messengers can create and use messaging features unlike project analysts.

Project messengers can view and create any Mixpanel report, and they can add and delete bookmarks. They can’t, however, manage team member roles.

Project Settings

Project settings enable you to see an overview of project details, see usage statistics, obtain the project token and API secret, and more.  

For more information on how to access and use project settings, see Project Settings.
