Manage Access

The first person to gain access to an artist on Apple Music for Artists is assigned the Administrator role. In Manage, an artist's Administrator can invite other users to view play data or update your artist image. Administrators grant each user a specific role:

  • Administrator: Administrators manage user access and roles related to Apple Music for Artists. Administrators can also invite new users and accept requests to join the artist's profile. More than one user can be assigned the Administrator role. The administrator is able to view analytics and update the artist image.
  • Analytics: Users can view the artist's data.
  • Profile Editor: Users can upload artist images.

If a new user has requested access to your profile, you will see a banner notification upon signing in to your profile, informing you to review these users.
