With the Open Source and Business tiers, admin users can only be linked with a single security role.

This means that if you want to have a user with multiple roles, you need to manually create a new role that combines the permissions of the two roles you want to combine.

And although this approach might work for some users, it can quickly become cumbersome to manage. This is where Teams comes in. With it, users can be assigned into a team, where each team can be linked with one or more roles.

This feature is especially useful for larger organizations, where it’s common to have multiple teams working on different projects. Also, it’s a great way to simplify the process of managing permissions for multiple users, as you can simply assign a role to a team, instead of assigning it to each individual user.

Enabling Teams and Feature Overview

For Webiny Enterprise users, apart from linking their Webiny project with Webiny Control Panel (WCP), there are no additional steps required to enable Teams.

Once linked, Teams will be automatically enabled and the module can be accessed from the main menu:
