Periscope supports three different user types: admin, write-access user, and read-only user. These are set up primarily through the use of user groups.
Admins are write-access users who can edit account settings. These included, but are not limited to: adding and removing users, assigning users to user groups, editing billing information, accessing the API key for the Embed API, adding additional databases, and viewing the cache status of tables for cached customers.
Write-access users have permissions to create new dashboards and charts, edit existing charts, change dashboard permissions, and access all SQL Snippets, Views, and Alerts.
Read-only users can only view, share and download charts. Read-only users are not be able to create or edit charts, create new dashboards, or view SQL Snippets, Views, or Alerts.
If Spaces is enabled for the site, admins will automatically become global admins across all Spaces. Currently there are no local Spaces Admins so all admins will have write-access and account permissions across each Space.
