Owner, Editor, and Viewer roles

Basic roles (owner, editor, and viewer) are fundamental roles for IAM and include different levels of access permissions for all the Firebase products and services.

The following table summarizes the permissions included in each role. Learn more about basic roles in the Google Cloud documentation.

Note that basic roles were formerly called "primitive" roles.

Assign these roles to your members using the Firebase console.
