About Eggplant Roles

Eggplant DAI has three roles for users: Viewer, User, and Admin.


To have any access to DAI, users must first be added to one of the three system roles, namely dai:admin, dai:user or dai:viewer.

Viewer Role

The Viewer Role (dai:viewer) is a read-only role that allows you to:

  • View dashboards, results, existing models, test cases, test configs, Git repos, and SUTs.
  • Export test cases.

It does not allow you to create, edit, or export models; edit test cases; edit test configurations; or run tests.

In Designer, this role does not allow access to Snippets, Capture, User, Journeys and Live Run.

In Systems, this role does not allow access to API Access, Access, Logs, Licenses and Agent Tools.

User Role

The User Role (dai:user) allows you to:

  • Manage your account details, passwords, including multi-factor authentication, and other session information.
  • Build models, share access to models you have access to, run tests, and view results.
  • View and use all agents.

It doesn’t allow you to see any of the menu options for administration features.

Admin Role

The Admin Role (dai:admin) gives you access to all the same features as a User. In addition it lets you:

Assigning Roles

During installation, an account with the Admin Role assigned is created. This account lets you create and manage the accounts of other administrators and users. An administrator must assign the correct role to each user before they can access Eggplant DAI.
