Administrator Guide

This page details the role of an Admin of the Cinchy Platform

Administrators

The “Admins” of the Cinchy platform are users who belong to the "Cinchy Administrators" User Group.

Admin types

Cinchy Admins fall into two categories:
Setting a user as an Admin doesn't supersede/change their role as an end-user vs builder.

Builder Admins

A Builder Admin can:
  • Modify all table data (including system tables), all schema, and all data controls.
    • This includes setting up and configuring users, assigning them to groups, and assigning which users have builder access.
  • View all tables (including system tables) and queries in the platform.

End-User Admins

An End-User Admin can:
  • View all tables (including system tables) and queries in the platform.
  • Modify data controls for tables.

Manage Admins

To view and manage who has administrator access, you will use the System table Groups.
Note that you must have the correct entitlements set to view or access the "Groups" table. If you are part of the "Administrators" group already, then you can view all system tables by default.

Builder Admin management

A builder is able to view which users are part of the "Administrators" group via the "Groups" system table; either in the data browser or by using a saved/ad-hoc query.
If you are an admin, you can also use the "Groups" table to add or remove users from the "Administrators" Group.

End-User Admin management

An End-User Admin is able to view which users are part of the "Administrators" group via the "Groups" system table; either in the data browser or by using a saved query.
