Cooperation is one of the core principles of the IXON Cloud. This is why the IXON Cloud offers benefits for multiple people. In order to enable everybody that has access to your IXON Cloud company to do what he or she does best, IXON has an extensive user management system. Through this user management system, you can give users access to the functions they need, to do their job.

User management is a system you can use to determine what permissions a user will get and what devices this user will get to execute these permitted actions for. The infographic depicted below shows how our user management system works. Our user management system consists of three core elements. They are defined in the table below.
|Roles||A role is a selection of permissions. There are admin and device permissions, and you can add access categories.|
|Access categories||An access category is a selection of pages and services.|
|A group is a selection of devices and users. You can divide groups in different group types.|
The role of a user will determine what a user can do. This is partly regulated through permissions for our apps, and partly through permissions to use the pages and services in an access category. Groups put users and devices together. This determines the devices for which a user can execute his or her permissions. The infographic depicted below illustrates the relationships between users, devices and our user management system.
