User Types

In the City Platform, users are individuals who have access to the system. In most cases, they are tied to a specific organization - that is, a user cannot be a member of multiple organizations. Users can be tied to zero, one or multiple trading accounts.

For organizations, there are two principle types of user:

  • Customer: A user who can login to the system, but cannot make changes to users or accounts.
  • Org Admin: An admin user who can make changes to users and accounts. Depending on the organization's configuration, an Org Admin may have the ability to modify account risk limits.

Every user in the City Platform must have a unique email address. If a customer has an account with one broker and then chooses to open an account with a different broker, they will most likely need to use a different email address for the new broker.
