Assigning a Finance User Role

You can provide portal access to those who make financial decisions for the registered company by creating specific user roles: Finance or Financial Contact. These roles determine the user’s permissions to manage the account.


You must have Company Admin permissions to create or edit user roles.

A Finance user can:

  • Place and approve orders
  • View financial data
  • View and delete services
  • Make payments
  • Create, view, and modify service keys
  • Create, edit, and delete credit card records

The Financial Contact role is similar to a Finance role, but does not have permissions to place or approve orders, delete services, or administer service keys.

A Financial Contact user can:

  • View and define services
  • View the Megaport Marketplace profile
  • Create, edit, and delete credit card records
  • View financial data
  • Make payments

To create a financial user role

  1. Choose Company > Manage Users.
