Like with Package Admin, it's possible to set up a standard user to be able to manage Live Rooms. A Live Room admin can create new Live Rooms, invite others to them, and elevate other user admins for specific live rooms.
Create a Role
This tutorial will show how to create a new role specifically for Live Room admins. However, any role can be adjusted to give a standard users these permissions.
From the user icon on the left (step 1), click on User Roles (step 2) and then click the green button to create a +New User Role (step 3).
Name the new role whatever is appropriate. In this example it's called "stream-admin." First, check under the Role Info. Make sure that two boxes are checked below:
- Create Live Room
- Stream Admin
With these two boxes checked, users with this role can create Live Rooms. However, this role does not allow access to any users. The user is therefore not able to share this room with anyone. To enable a user to share this room, view access to users must be provided.
Change View User
To give the Live Room admin the ability to share with users, go to the User Access Rules tab.
- Add a rule and name it.
- Check View Users at the top of the User Permissions section.
- Add the condition for your rule.
In the image below, the role allows view access based on several companies. For complete instructions on managing user roles, click here.
Elevate Users to Admin
Users can be enabled as admins from within a live room, without otherwise changing their access role.
For any standard users added, in the list you can click the three dots next to their name. This will bring up the option to create another admin role. This person will have admin rights for this particular room. Important: room admins elevated this way can also elevate the access of other users in the room.
