Users

Every user is assigned an appropriate account type based on their role. Roles determine the features that are accessible to a user and controls whether the user can modify data.

User accounts can be created, edited, deleted and exported to a CSV file from the Users view under Administration. New accounts created from the login page are assigned the Developer role by default, but can be upgraded to accommodate other roles as needed.

Account Types

The account type determines the feature set and data accessible to the user.

RAN Provider Admin

RAN Provider Admin users are responsible for administration of the RAN Provider Portal and its users.

RAN Provider

RAN Providers register, manage and monitor LoRaWAN Base Stations on the Operator's RAN (Radio Access Network).

RAN Provider - Read Only

RAN Provider Read Only users monitor everything RAN Managers have access to, e.g. LoRaWAN Base Stations on the Operator's RAN (Radio Access Network), but cannot make any changes.

Two Factor Authentication

Administrators can enable two-factor authentication for end users.

  1. Click the two-factor authentication in the Edit User dialog.

Upgrading Developer Users

RAN Provider Administrators have the ability to upgrade Developer users to provide access to the RAN account's Base Stations. An Administrator enters the username of the Developer in the Upgrade Developer User dialog to grant access. If both users are Administrators, then each has the ability to select the roles to assign (both are assigned by default).

In order to protect Developer users from being taken control of by competing customers, an email domain field is configured by the platform provider for the RAN Provider account. Only Developers who have an email address with the same domain as the configured email domain can be upgraded. Additionally, Developer users cannot be upgraded if they have already been upgraded by the RAN Provider, the platform operator, or another customer.

Users that possess both Application Provider - Admin and RAN Provider - Admin roles can choose which roles to grant to a Developer during an upgrade.
