Roles and Permissions in DSM

Design System Manager (DSM) lets you control roles for both the organization and each library. DSM has three organization-level roles and three library-level roles. Below are the different roles and their respective permissions.

Organization-level roles

Admin

A DSM organization admin can do the following to manage the organization:

  • Add and remove members from the DSM organization*
  • Toggle ‘Open Access’ which opens DSM membership to anyone on the InVision Enterprise account
  • Create new libraries
  • View and edit all libraries in the organization
  • Change member permissions

*Note that for Enterprise accounts, only members of the InVision account can be invited as members of the DSM account.

Editor

A DSM organization editor can do the following to manage the organization:

  • Edit libraries that are available to anyone in the organization
  • Create new libraries

Viewer

A DSM organization viewer has one permission: He or she can view libraries that are available to anyone in the organization.

Library-level roles

Admin

A DSM library admin can do the following to manage the specific library:

  When adding members to a specific DSM library, an admin can also set their library-level roles.

Editor

A DSM library editor can do the following to manage the specific library:

  • Invite members of the DSM organization to the library
    Note: Invited members will retain their organization-level permissions (e.g., an org-level editor will become a library editor).
  • Edit the library

Viewer

A DSM library viewer has one permission for the specific library: He or she can view library.

Library privacy settings

There are three library privacy settings which you can use to determine who can access the library:

  1. Anyone in my DSM organization
  2. Only invited people
  3. Anyone with a DSM share link, including anonymous users, can view the library, but not use it via Sketch.

Note: DSM organization admins are also admins of all libraries in the organization, independently of their privacy settings.
