Region-level user permissions

Learn how to assign Region Administrator and Moderator permissions to your teammates, and take full advantage of Breakroom's powerful region creation and event management tools.


There are two categories of special user permissions that you can assign to teammates, event coordinators, or end users—world-level permissions, and region-level permissions. It is important to note that these two categories are distinct, with their own separate spheres of influence and control. On this page, we will discuss region-level user types and how you can assign advanced region-level permissions to your users.

Region-level user types

Users with advanced region-level permissions have powers that apply to individual regions within your world. These users can assist with setting up your individual regions and moderating your events, but cannot log in to your Dashboard in order to manage users, change default regions, approve content submitted to Curator, or change your world-level settings unless you have also assigned them advanced world-level user permissions.
It may be helpful to think of advanced region-level permissions as those you can assign and manage through the Region Information window.
In brief, the current region-level user types are:
Region Owners have absolute control over the region and its settings.
Owners can:
Region Administrators can perform many of the same tasks as Region Owners. They cannot appoint additional Administrators.
Administrators can:
Region Moderators have access to the moderator controls and certain region settings. They cannot appoint additional Moderators.
Moderators can:
Region Developers have access to the Region Editor, and can decorate and modify the region to which they are assigned. They do not occupy a Developer seat, and cannot upload content to your world.
Developers can:
Region Members have no special privileges, but will be permitted to enter the region should Contact Only or Approved Only access be enabled.
If an unassigned user enters your region, they will appear in the member list as a Guest. Guests have no special privileges, and will not be permitted to enter the region if access is controlled.
Designating a user as a VIP gives them no special powers. Currently, this role is only useful for Lua script functionality and presenter seats.
Reminder: Only World Owners and World Administrators can manage and delete regions through the Dashboard.

Assigning and revoking advanced region-level permissions

To assign advanced region-level permissions to your users, please follow the steps below. For more information about adding users to your world, please visit this page.
  1. 1.
    Click on the Region Information button located above your mini map. This will open the Region Information window.
2. Click on the Members tab, and then the Add Members button. This will open the "Add new members" dialog box.
3. Use the search field to search for the user's name. Once you find it, click the Add button.
4. Once the user is added to the region members list, check the box next to their name and then click on the Set Role drop-down menu. From this menu, select the permissions level you'd like to assign the user.
To revoke advanced region-level permissions, simply follow Step 4 above, and select either the Member or Guest role. If you prefer, you can also remove the user from the members list entirely.

Assigning region control to a group

Alternatively, by enabling the "Groups Only" region access option, you can assign control over a region to one or more groups. When a region is set to "Groups Only," then the group member lists will override the region's existing members list, including any region members with advanced permissions.
This means that only Group Administrators, Group Moderators, Group Developers, etc. will be able to exercise their powers over the region as a whole. Additionally, only group members will be permitted to visit the region. Any users in the region member list will be ignored.
To disable group control over the region, simply choose a different region access option. Doing so will restore access and advanced permissions to any users in the region members list.

Removing region members

To remove a user from the region members list entirely, follow these steps.
  1. 1.
    Click on the Region Information button located above your mini map. This will open the Region Information window.
  2. 2.
    Click on the Members tab, and use the search field to search for the user's name.
  3. 3.
    Once you locate the user you want to remove, click the Edit button located to the right of their name. In the action menu that appears, click Delete.
