I'm looking for a suitable word to describe a computer application user, who has no administrator privileges. To contextualize this, the application relates to the management of skills/abilities within a business environment, and this would be a level of access whereby a person could see their own data only.
The context is as follows:
Level Term Description 3 Super User Highest level of access 2 Administrator Medium/custom-level of access 1 ????? Basic access
I found a similar question here, but the context is different and therefore the suggestions are not appropriate.
Words that have been considered but deemed unsuitable are:
- User – too general, and a Super User and Administrator are also "users", so this was confusing
- Basic – not contextual enough, and maybe construed as relating to "stupid"
- Standard – not contextual enough
- Student – the software is not academic, and this relates too closely to education
- General – best so far
This is often called an unprivileged user.
The Linux man page for user_namespaces starts:
Microsoft's security best practices include headers that use similar terms:
Apple refers to unprivileged applications in security bulletins:
