Account types#

There are three account types: owner, admin, and member. The account type affects the user permissions and access.

Feature availability

To use admin accounts, you need a pro or enterprise plan.

Account types and role types

Account types and role types are different things. Role types are part of RBAC.

Every account has one type. The account can have different role types for different projects.

Create a member-level account for the owner

n8n recommends that owners create a member-level account for themselves. Owners can see and edit all workflows, credentials, and projects. However, there is no way to see who created a particular workflow, so there is a risk of overriding other people's work if you build and edit workflows as an owner.
