# Managing Roles

By managing provider and channel roles, you can control the information that developers can view and edit on the LINE Developers Console. This page describes the types of roles that can be assigned to developers registered on providers and channels.

The provider and channel each have respective roles.

# Provider roles

A developer who is registered as a provider can be given either the Admin role or Member role.

It's possible to grant channel access to a developer without granting provider access. In this case, the developer's role in the provider will be "No role".

Admin Member No role *1
View provider name
View provider ID ✅ *2 ✅ *2
Edit provider name
Delete provider *3
View list of channels linked to provider
Create a channel under provider
Add or delete developer to/from provider
View or edit provider role settings

*1 Only with access to the channel linked to the provider.

*2 Cannot view the Provider settings screen, but provider ID will be included in the URL when developer selects a provider.

*3 Cannot delete a provider with existing channels.

On provider roles and channel roles

Even with the Admin role on the provider, without channel access, you cannot see detailed information of the channel that is linked to the provider.

Even if you grant provider access to a developer, the developer won't automatically be given access to the channel(s) linked to the provider. However, please note that when a developer, who is registered on both the provider and a channel(s) linked to the provider, is deleted from the provider, the developer will automatically be deleted from the channel(s) too.

What is the difference between "Member" and "No role" on the provider?

Both "Member" and "No role" on the provider can only view the provider name.

If you grant the Member role to a developer on a provider, you can add the developer to a channel linked to the provider, simply by clicking Import from provider on the Roles tab of the channel (the developer needs Admin role in the channel in order to add other developers to the channel).

Import from provider
