In VIDIZMO users can be centrally managed in the platform where we allow specific authoritative roles in the Users hierarchy to modify the extent to which a user, being part of an organization, may participate, engage or control (with) the content and its various settings in the Portal.

Users in VIDIZMO can be classified into multiple roles, each having a specific purpose with respect to their participation in the organization's media management. This helps streamline the process of defining responsibilities for every user by standardizing certain sets of rules and permissions for every role defined. These roles are then assigned to every User being added to the VIDIZMO Account determining the scope of their operative and functional responsibilities within the application while mapping their profile's accessibility to certain permissions/restrictions for ease of management. These Roles include Administrator, Manager, Moderator, Contributor, and Viewer. In order to learn about what each of these roles offer and how do they differ in authority, read more about it here: Understanding User Roles.

VIDIZMO further categorizes the Users on the basis of Federated and Non-Federated User. For a User signing into the Portal using VIDIZMO-specific credentials is classified as a Non-Federated User whereas a User using credentials of an organization's Identity Access Management system (IAMs) such as Okta or third-party logins such as Facebook, which then authenticates the User on behalf of the organization and provides basic profile information to VIDIZMO for acknowledgment is referred to as a Federated User.
