Permissions / Role Based Access Control

Flagsmith provides fine-grained permissions to help larger teams manage access and roles across projects and environments.

Permissions are assigned to individual team members or to groups.


The Permissions/Role Based Access features of Flagsmith are not part of the Open Source version. If you want to use these features as part of a self hosted/on premise solution, please get in touch.


Groups are a convenient way to manage permissions for multiple team members. Groups can contain any number of team members. You can create groups with the Organisation Settings page.


Team members can be defined as Organisation Administrators or Users. Organisation Administrator is effectively a super-user role, and gives full read/write access to every Project, Environment, Flag, Remote Config and Segment within that Organisation.

Users that are not Organisation Administrators must have permissions assigned to them manually at the relevant levels. The permissions available at the Organisation level are defined below.

Create ProjectAllows the user to create projects in the given Organisation
