Users, Groups and Organizational Units#

sysman sysadmin

Allegra recognizes two types of users:

  • Regular users

  • Guest users

Regular users can do everything in the system that is allowed to them through their assigned system role and workspace roles. Guest users can only see and edit their own, self-created items.

Users can belong to an organization and be assigned to any number of groups. Groups can be used almost everywhere where users can also be assigned. For example, a group can be used as a responsible party.

In contrast to organizational units, groups cannot be structured hierarchically. Users can always only belong to one organizational unit.


To be able to create or edit users, groups, and organizational units, you must have been assigned the system role “System Administrator” or “System Manager” (see System Roles & User Interface)
