Manage Login Permission Templates

Rather than manually choosing role permissions for each new login, Login Permission Templates make it much faster to manage large numbers of logins and maintain consistent permissions across them. Login Permission Templates can be created and applied using the Alarm.com customer website. 

To view templates that have already been created:  

  1. Log into the Alarm.com customer website.
  2. Verify the Enterprise name is selected, and not a location name. When the Enterprise group is selected, a Locations option shows in the menu instead of Home
    • If a location is selected, use the dropdown menu to select the Enterprise group. Enterprise groups have Group property next to the Enterprise name, whereas locations will have icn-enterprise-open.svg for commercial accounts or Single property for residential accounts next to the location name.
    • If the option to select an Enterprise group is not showing, verify the login has access to the Enterprise group.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Click Login Permission Templates.

  2. Verify the Enterprise name is selected, and not a location name. When the Enterprise group is selected, a Locations option shows in the menu instead of Home
    • If a location is selected, use the dropdown menu to select the Enterprise group. Enterprise groups have Group property next to the Enterprise name, whereas locations will have icn-enterprise-open.svg for commercial accounts or Single property for residential accounts next to the location name.

Note: If a Login Permission Template is removed, all logins associated with the template will continue to exist, and no changes will be made to their permissions. However, these logins will be reassigned the CUSTOM login role.

  1. Log into the Alarm.com customer website.
  2. Verify the Enterprise name is selected, and not a location name. When the Enterprise group is selected, a Locations option shows in the menu instead of Home

  2. Click Users.
  3. Click Manage Logins
