Enhanced User Management

Companies with multiple and/or large teams expect the user management capabilities of the services they use to support their organization structure.

Kay capabilities expected from an enterprise solution:

  • Users assigned roles - directly or via association to user groups that have been assigned roles
  • Access to resource (e.g., entire WKS workspaces, or WKS areas, like administration) controlled via user groups and user roles
  • Special management of Admins and Instance Owners - multiple admins, ownership transfer, etc.
  • User management API
  • Finely grained / custom user roles

At present, WKS lacks support for user groups, making user management in large organizations difficult.

WKS also does not allow downgrading of user roles - users promoted to Admins cannot be downgraded. This creates problems with managing users even in small teams that need to restrict the number of admins.
