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.

RAN Provider Admin
RAN Provider Admin users are responsible for administration of the RAN Provider Portal and its users.
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.
RAN Provider - Contract View The RAN Provider - Contract View role is defined to create a Contract centric presentation of the RAN Provider data. Portal views are only visible to this role if the data in the view can be filtered by a Contract ID.
The following table shows all views that are visible to a user with the RAN Provider - Read Only role and whether that view is included for a user with the RAN Provider - Contract view role:
|Base Station Details||Summary||Yes|
|Site Info -> Contacts||Yes|
|Site Info -> Lease||Yes|
|Site Info -> Site Details||Yes|
|Site Info -> Internet Connections||Yes|
|Base Station Diagnostics||Yes|
|Alerts and Cases||Yes|
|Reports||Device Trend 30 Days||Yes|
|Transaction Trend 30 Days||Yes|
|Availability Trend 30 Days||Yes|
|Availability Trend 12 Months||Yes|
|Hourly Availability 24 Hours||Yes|

Two Factor Authentication
Administrators can enable two-factor authentication for end users.
Click the two-factor authentication in the Edit User dialog.
Make sure the user's information includes a valid phone number before saving.
When the user logs into the Portal, they will be sent an authentication code to the registered phone number.
That authentication code is entered to complete the login.
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.
