Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) in the Coram AI cloud dashboard allows for four roles: Admin, Regular, Limited, and Live-only, each with different levels of permissions. Admins can assign roles and limit access to cameras for non-admin users. This feature is useful for restricting access to cameras that are not relevant to a user's job function or for maintaining privacy.

Types of roles

Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) is a security model that is used to manage access to resources in a system based on the roles of individual users. The Coram AI cloud dashboard supports RBAC with four roles: Admin, Regular, Limited, and Live-only.

Admin Role

The Admin role has all the permissions and can see all the cameras across all the locations. They can add and remove users with no restrictions.

Regular Role

The Regular role has limited permissions compared to the Admin role. They cannot add or remove other users, and they cannot enable or disable devices.

Limited Role

The Limited role has similar permissions to the Regular role, but Limited users cannot download and share video clips.

Live-only Role

The Live-only role has the most restricted access compared to the other roles. Users with this role can only see the live video feed. They cannot see historical data, download, or share any video.

Adding a user to Coram AI

Go to Settings on the top right, add a user with email, and assign them a role. The user should get an email with instructions to log in.

Removing a user from Coram AI

To remove a user or to change their role, simply click on the role drop-down and select one of the options.

Limiting access to cameras

In addition to assigning roles and permissions to users, the Coram AI cloud dashboard also allows you to limit the access of non-admin users to certain cameras. This feature is especially useful if you want to restrict users from accessing cameras that are not relevant to their job function or if you want to maintain the privacy of certain areas.

To limit the access of a non-admin user to certain cameras, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the Coram AI cloud dashboard with your Admin account.

  2. Click on the "Settings" button in the top right corner of the page.

  3. Select the non-admin user whose camera access you want to restrict and click on the "Camera Access" drop-down menu.

  4. Select the "Location" where the cameras you want to restrict are located.

  5. Select the "Groups" of cameras that you want the user to be able to access.

  6. Click on the "Done" button to apply the changes.

Note that cameras can be assigned to "Groups" from the "Devices" page on the left panel.
