# Administration

In all Cytomine instances, there is specific users with extended permissions that are able to manage their Cytomine instance.

# Concepts

In Cytomine, all users have defined permissions that allow them to do specific actions. There is 4 types of users :

  • Guest : It is the lowest permission into the Cytomine platform. A guest is able to browse through images and draw annotations into the projects he was allowed by a project manager but he cannot create its own projects and cannot upload images in its storage. In an educational context, guest is the classic permission for students.
  • User : An user can create a project, upload its image into its storage, add its images into the project, invite other people in its managed project. In an educational context, user is the classic permission for teachers.
  • Admin : An admin can access to the administrator panel, can use account of anyone in the same instance, can lock other people, access to any project, etc. Only trusted user must have the admin permission. An admin must activate its administrator privileges before using them.
  • SuperAdmin : A special admin which the administrator privileges are activated by default. Mainly used by system accounts.
