What is account management?Link copied!
Account management enables you to set permissions for Dynamic Content users, without the need to contact Amplience support. The Account management panel is what you use to set user permissions.
When can I use account management?Link copied!
If your Dynamic Content instance was set up after we released account management, you’ll use account management straight away for setting user permissions.
If your Dynamic Content instance existed before we released account management, you may still be using the original process of getting user permissions changed by sending requests to Amplience support. Where this is the case, you will go through a simple migration process before you can use account management. Read about the migration process.
Why are personas replacing roles?Link copied!
As part of the account management release, a new role based permissions structure has been introduced, that will replace the original persona based permissions over time. Personas cannot be used with the account management system.
|Personas are part of the original permissions model||Roles are part of account management and are similar to personas|
|Permissions are updated by Amplience support||Permissions are updated by you and are under your control|
For a full explanation about permissions, roles and personas, see Permissions.

Who will the organization admin be?Link copied!
You can choose which people are your organization admins. Each organization admin can set roles on all hubs and repositories for all users. See Assigning organization roles.

Can I add new users to my account?Link copied!
Currently you can't add new users to your account and this action is performed by Amplience support. However, this is a feature that will be delivered in the future.
Are my Content Hub/DAM user permissions affected?Link copied!
No - managing user permissions for Dynamic Content makes no changes to the level of access in Content Hub/DAM.
Can I have different roles on different hubs and repositories?Link copied!
Will my level of user access change when I'm migrated?Link copied!
No, the personas that you used prior to account management map to roles that are used to set permissions with account management. See How personas map to roles.
Can I hide hubs and repositories from users?Link copied!
Yes, assigning no role to a user for a hub or repository means they can no longer see that hub or repository.
