User Roles & Access Control

Voucherify organizes work on promotional campaigns with Users and Projects. These components give you the ability to launch enterprise-grade promotions, which require the involvement of many parties. Let's see how access control in Voucherify works in practice.


  1. Key Concepts
  2. Merchants with no access to the dashboard
  3. Roles of users with access to the dashboard:
    1. Assign a user to a built-in role
    2. Create a custom role and assign user   Enterprise feature
  4. List of actions permitted within Voucherify roles – dictionary

If you want to share and redeem promo codes by collaborating with affiliates, we supplied Voucherify with features that enable you to limit users' access to the dashboard and perform particular actions only.

Key concepts

  • Users – you can invite team members to collaborate on campaigns on the Dashboard. After account confirmation, new users can be granted access to projects. Each user's activity is tracked and can be seen in the audit logs. Go here to learn how to invite new members.
  • Projects – projects group campaigns in collections. The primary goal of projects is to help you control user access to campaigns. You can define which users have access to separate projects. For example, Jane can operate only on new acquisition campaigns but cannot access employee discounts. Go here to learn more about managing your projects
  • API keys – each project can have multiple API keys. This gives you the ability to control how your team members and 3rd party vendors interact with the API and access data. Learn more about API keys here

The user structure is managed per project. However, the custom roles are defined for the whole organization.

Merchants with API keys

Merchants with API keys are allowed to perform validation and redemption only, excluding other activities (they don't have access to the Dashboard). You can make as many redemption points as you want to and keep the only rights to create and manage your coupons.

Coupons are generated and managed by your Voucherify account.

  1. When vouchers are ready, you can deliver them to your affiliates (Merchants) where they are published.
  2. Customers can now come to these stores (Merchants) to redeem their codes.
  3. The Merchant sends a redemption request to Voucherify. If the coupon is valid, Voucherify sends a positive response, and the redemption is successful (all redemption details are noted in your Voucherify account).

Go here to learn more about the coupon redemption process.


The Merchant role is available with unique API keys, which you can create in the Voucherify Dashboard.

  1. To begin, open the Project Settings and go General > Application Keys section.

    Project Keys

  2. Choose Plus to generate unique API keys and assign them to a particular merchant (you can add as many merchants as you want to). After you define a name for a merchant and choose the Merchant role, choose Create access API key option.

    Creating API for Merchant

  3. Share the API key with your affiliate and send the coupons (see export options) to publish. With these credentials, the Merchant can validate/redeem delivered codes.

Users with dashboard access

Within Team settings, you can also assign particular roles to your team members and affiliates. Roles control what kind of access to your data a specific user is granted. 

The roles can be added only by the ADMIN user, who doesn't have any limits on an account.

The process is divided into two main steps:

  1. Define a role – grant access to particular data and activities (endpoints).
  2. Invite a new team member and assign them to the role.

Role Types

While inviting a new team member to the project, an administrator can assign one of the built-in roles:

Role Description
ADMIN Has full access to everything in the workspace.
USER Can read, modify and export data from an assigned project, but cannot add new team members or create new projects.
VIEWER Can read all data from an assigned project and export data, but cannot modify any data.
MERCHANT Can search vouchers by the code, search customers by their source id, email, and phone number, redeem vouchers and view redemptions invoked with his/her account. Merchants have access to the products list but can't update or create products. They won't be able to read any other data in the project or perform any other action besides a redemption. Merchants are allowed to export their redemptions.
Enterprise feature
ADMIN can create new roles and set access rights allowed for each of them. By default, custom roles have data export disabled.
To get access to the Custom roles, you need to have an Enterprise subscription.

Managing Roles
