For an explanation of user models and how they relate to our pricing models, see Overview of pricing and user changes.
For users on our original user model, access will vary depending on whether you have default roles or custom roles:
Admins have full access to all synthetic monitoring features on an account.
Restricted Users on accounts with original product-based pricing have view-only access to all synthetic monitoring features except:

This means that users with this role do not have access to all create, edit, and delete capabilities for synthetic monitoring features (as well as view capability for secure credentials) until they are given a role with the appropriate capabilities.
To get started, follow standard procedures to create a custom role. You can add View and Edit capabilities to any role for the following:
For users on the New Relic One user model, the ability to use the synthetic monitoring UI to create and manage synthetic monitors requires the full platform user user type.
