Account Properties and User Management

Jan 27, 2016


The JW Player Dashboard team has just released a set of advanced Account settings that now allow agencies or enterprises with multiple divisions to segment their content, players, and analytics into multiple “Properties” in the dashboard.  By adding Properties to an account, you can now consolidate billing, while slicing reporting of analytics for different publications, applications, or websites.  Conveniently, Usage data (including plays, ad impressions, and storage volumes) is viewable on the per-property basis and can be rolled up for the entire account.  Important account settings such as DNS masking and content protection are settable on the Property level and certainly may be different across Properties.  Your platform API keys are also unique to each Property, and can be found on the property detail page in the dashboard.  

But what would the addition of multiple Properties be without advanced user management? Now, Admin users can delegate access to Manager users for one or more Properties.  No more need for shared logins!  In addition to managing Properties and Users, Admins can view Usage and Billing data, while Managers are limited to editing content and players, and viewing analytics.  

Find out even more detail about how to set up and use Properties by reading our user support documentation.  

We are planning to add new user roles in the future – think read-only user, or users with no access to analytics – if you have specific needs for your business please leave a comment for the product team!  We’d love to hear from you.   

This new feature is available to JW Player customers who have purchased high-volume hosting and streaming.  Contact your sales representative or
