Managing Team Members

Learn how to manage team members on Vercel, and how to assign roles to each member with role-based access control (RBAC).
Table of Contents

As the team owner, you have the ability to manage your team's composition and the roles of its members, controlling the actions they can perform. These role assignments, governed by Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) permissions, define the access level each member has across all projects within the team's scope. Details on the various roles and the permissions they entail can be found in the Access Roles section.

Inviting new team members is available on Pro and Enterprise plans

Those with the owner role can access this feature

  1. From the dashboard, select your team from the scope selector

  2. Select the Settings tab and go to the Members section

  3. Enter the email address of the person you would like to invite, assign their role, and select the Invite button. You can invite multiple people at once using the Add more button:

    Inviting new members to your team.
    Inviting new members to your team.
  4. By default only the team level roles are visible in the dropdown. If you choose to assign the contributor role to the new member, a second dropdown will be accessible by selecting the Assign Project Roles button. You can then select the project, and their role on that project you want to assign the contributor to:

Team owners can also share an invite link with others to allow them to join the team without needing to be invited individually. To generate an invite link:

  1. Ensure you have selected your team from the scope selector
  2. Select the Settings tab and go to the Members section
  3. Select the Invite Link button and use the icon to copy the invite link:
    Adding members to team using the Invite Link.
    Adding members to team using the Invite Link.
  4. Optionally, you can select Reset Invite Link to generate a new link. After doing this, all other invite links will become invalid.
  5. Share the link with others. Those who join from an invite link will be given the lowest permissions for that team. For the Enterprise plan, they will be assigned the Viewer role. For the Pro plan, they will be assigned the Member role.

If you are interested in joining one of the suggested teams, then you can request access to join.

The team owner can accept, decline or change role permissions for your request from the Pending Invitations list. You can select the Leave Team button accessible through the ellipsis next to your team role to Leave a Team.

Vercel is also SCIM compliant. This means that if you are using SAML SSO, de-provisioning from the third-party provider will also off board the member from Vercel.
