Shared Access Setup & Group Sharing

Jeremy Allison Updated by Jeremy Allison


Shared Access is used to share group access between Brivo Accounts. Useful for Multi-Tenant and sharing access to building entry and common areas.


Shared Access requires the Enterprise Edition of Brivo Access; but recipients can be on any edition. The tenant account number is required for setup. The account number can be found under Configuration>Account Settings>Account Number. The setup of this feature requires interaction by both account parties and must be done in Brivo Access.

Steps to Create

  1. On the left navigation bar, navigate to the Configuration tab and select Account Settings.
  2. Once on the Account Page, click on Shared Access at the top of the screen and then click the Add Access button. Enter the tenant account number you are sharing access with and click Send Invitation.

  1. Once the tenant accepts the invitation, Accepted will be displayed under the Shared Access tab.

  1. Next, click on your account name under Shared Access>Access Shared by You.
  2. Click Assign a Group and select the group or groups to be shared with the tenant.
    1. Best Practice: create specific groups to be shared with other accounts. This will help you easily keep track of internal groups vs. shared groups.
