User Management and Administration Authentication

Last modified: February 13, 2023

Provision Users

For new Auto Insights organizations, a Super Admin or Organisation Admin creates user accounts individually via the Auto Insights Admin Console. Organisation Admins handle the ongoing process for user access provisioning (to assign or revoke access rights). Learn more in the Invite New User article.

Ongoing review of the security permissions across users, groups, and datasets is also the responsibility of the Organisation Admin.

User Authentication

Auto Insights supports 2 primary mechanisms for user authentication:

  • Locally administered user accounts: Users authenticate to Auto Insights using basic authentication secured under HTTPS. JSON Web Token standard ( is used internally to secure the ongoing user session. 

  • User accounts and passwords are administered through the Auto Insights Admin Portal. A role-based access control (RBAC) model is used to provide authorized users access to individual resources (for example data sets).
