Roles and Permissions

Access and permissions management for different user roles

Free and Maker plans have a locked set of permissions for each role, meaning the default permissions by role cannot be changed. PRO and Business plans have permissions that may be edited by role.

Editing Roles and Permissions

Blynk has 3 default roles that can have different sets of permissions:

  • Admin – is intended to have the highest level of permissions

  • Staff – we recommend to set up and use this role for internal company functions and client support

  • Users – is intended to have the most limited set of permissions, mostly focused on managing their own devices


  • Collapse/Expand all in Actions block – applies eponymous actions to expandable permissions list

  • + / - buttons – click to expand/collapse specific permission sections

  • Enable/Disable switches – use the switches to grant/prohibit certain access level and permissions to specific users types. Note that some permissions are dependent on other permissions
