Managing users in Dagster Cloud#

This guide is applicable to Dagster Cloud.

In this guide, we'll walk you through adding, removing, and assigning user roles to users in Dagster Cloud.


Seeding users#

When your organization is first created, we will seed your database with admin users as requested. If you need to add more users, configure SAML or SSO, or are having trouble with your permissions, contact these seed users.


Adding and removing users#

Organization Admin or Admin permissions are required to add or remove users in Dagster Cloud.

Adding a user#

Before you start, note that:

  • Users are managed on a per-deployment basis. Organization Admins are the exception and have access to the entire organization.

    For example, if you have two full deployments (prod and dev), users who aren't Organization Admins must be added to each deployment to have access.

  • If using Google for SSO, users must be added in Dagster Cloud before they can log in.

  • If using a SAML-based solution like Okta, users must be assigned to the Dagster app in the SSO portal to log in. These users will be granted Viewer permissions by default.

To add a new user to a deployment:

  1. Sign in to your Dagster Cloud account.

  2. Click the user menu (your icon) > Cloud Settings.

  3. Fill in the following:

    • Email - Enter the user's email address
    • Role - Select the user role for the user. Note: With the exception of the Organization Admin role, this role will only apply to the full deployment you're adding the user to.

    For example:

    Cloud Settings Interface for Permissions
  4. Click + Add.

Removing a user#

To remove a user from a deployment:

  1. Sign in to your Dagster Cloud account.
  2. Click the user menu (your icon) > Cloud Settings.
  3. Locate the user in the user list.
  4. Click Remove.
  5. When prompted, confirm the removal.

Note: This won't remove users from other deployments. For example, if a user has been added to both prod and dev but only removed in prod, they'll still be a user in dev.


Understanding user permissions#

With the exception of the Organization Admin role, user roles are set on a per-deployment basis and enforced both in Dagster Cloud and the GraphQL API.

Dagster Cloud currently includes support for four levels of role-based access control:

  • Viewer - The least permissive role
  • Editor
  • Admin
  • Organization Admin - The most permissive role
