Introduction


Roles are used to give employees permission to access locations and/or complete various tasks for devices within Whisker.io.


There are (3) pre-defined roles that are established when your account is created. The initial user will have access to all available default roles. Additional users will need to be assigned roles. Roles can also be assigned to locations and or dashboards. We'll discuss that later in this article.


The (3) default roles are as follows:

  • Admin: Complete control over Whisker.io and is allowed to provision new products/kits
  • Manager: Complete read/write access to Whisker.io -less permission to provision new products/kits
  • View: View access only -no ability edit anything

Dependent on your business model, roles can be modified and renamed. It's highly recommended to leave the default roles provided -as is. You are more than welcome to create as many new roles as you wish to manage.


Roles can be broken down by location and to control various features of Whisker.io's executive portal -such as Dashboards.
