User Guide for Service Providers

User Roles and Permissions

When you create a new user that can work with the Veeam Availability Console Client Portal, you must assign a role to this user. A user role defines permissions for a user, that is, what operations a user can perform, and what scope of data is available to a user in Veeam Availability Console.

Veeam Availability Console supports the following user roles for client companies:

Company Owner

Company Owner is the primary user acting on behalf of a company that consumes provided backup services. The Company Owner user is created when a company account is registered in Veeam Availability Console. For each company, there can be only one Company Owner.

You can think of the Company Owner as of a super user at the company level. In the Client Portal, the Company Owner has access to all monitoring and billing data for all company locations, and can perform all types of available configuration and management operations.

Company Administrator

Company Administrator has a similar set of privileges as the Company Owner, with a number of limitations:

Company User

Company User has access to company monitoring data, but cannot perform most configuration and management tasks. This user can only work with the functionality available in the Veeam Availability Console Client Portal. Data available to a Company User can be limited to one or more company locations, and the user can access data pertaining to all managed Veeam backup agents, Veeam Backup & Replication or Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager servers in these locations.

Subtenant

A Subtenant is a user who has cloud repository resources allocated and acts as a subtenant in Veeam Cloud Connect. This user can store backups created with Veeam backup agent, using own credentials. In addition, a Subtenant has access to the Client Portal. The scope of monitoring data available to a Subtenant in the Client Portal is limited to a computer (or computers) that is protected with Veeam backup agent, and whose data is stored on a cloud repository.

For details on Veeam Cloud Connect subtenants, see Subtenants.
