For your DSM organization, you can assign roles for certain levels of access to yourwholeDSM organization.
For each design system you create within your DSM organization, you can also assign who has a certain level of accessonlyto the design system.
DSM organization roles and permissions
With DSM, you have varying degrees of control over who can access your organization and individual design systems. There are three available roles in DSM.
For DSM Free accounts, all members in the organization are admins. The editor and viewer roles are available only for Enterprise plans. Users with a role of admin or higher in your InVision account automatically become admins in your DSM organization.
DSM design system roles and permissions
The same user roles that exist for the organization exist for individual design systems:
Like at the organization level, if you’re using DSM Free, the only available user role is admin. If you’re using DSM Enterprise, you have access to all 3 roles. You can assign anyone with a paid seat in your DSM organization to one of those roles.
Organization users typically retain their permissions at the design system level; they cannot be downgraded. Organization admins remain admins in the design system, and organization editors can't lose editor permissions for the design system.
A user can sometimesgainpermissions at the design system level. Take this scenario as an example. When an organization editor creates a design system, they become the admin of that design system by default. They can also be made admin or editor on any other design system. Likewise, organization viewers can be made admins, editors, or viewers on individual design systems.
As mentioned previously, you can have organization visitors and public visitors to your design systems as well, depending on your selected settings.
