ExoSense User Management¶
Users in ExoSense are managed by their unique email address. Each user has a Role assigned to them that defines their permissions in the application. Users are also invited to a specific group which contains assets, group-level dashboards, devices, and sub-groups. A user will have access to that group and all sub-groups.
The Users page allows inviting new users and checking the roles / group permissions of existing users.
To invite a user, click the button on the Users page, add their email address, choose their permisison role and the group they have access to in the hierarchy.

Administrators (those with the Setup-Roles function enabled) can create new roles such as 'Installer'.
