Managing LCS Users in Your Project

The Users section of LCS is where you manage the LCS users that are part of your project. It’s here that you can grant or revoke LCS Roles. To manage users, first click the Users tab just below the Dashboard tab on the upper-left of your screen.

The Users tab displays a list of the users in your project. This list includes each user’s name, email, image, LCS Roles, and a Manage Roles button. Each LCS user must have an assigned Role. The following Roles are available:

LCS Administrator: All LCS functionality is available to administrators. This is the only Role that can manage other users’ Roles.

LCS Environment Manager: All LCS functionality is available in the scope of an environment, with the exception of managing other users.

LCS Environment Viewer: Has read-only access in the scope of an environment.

You should note that each of these LCS Roles assume users already have the LCS User Role in their accounts. The LCS User Role is granted automatically the first time a user logs into LCS. The actions that can be performed by each of the LCS Roles are detailed in the below permissions matrix.
