We’re pleased to announce that a new release of the Admin Console is now live.
This release brings User Management – a new option in the top bar that enables you to create and manage additional users of the Admin Console.
It gives you a list of existing users with options to edit or delete them, or to add a new user.
To add a new user you specify a username and password, their name and email address, and the features and tenancies that they can administer. Once they have access, they will be able to change their password and email address under Account settings.
The control of access to Admin features is managed at two levels: Groups and Roles. You can also specify which tenancies can be administered. Selected Groups and Roles apply equally to all of the selected tenancies for the relevant product, such as Prism. Currently, Groups and Roles are provided only for Prism. Use the arrow controls to select or de-select Groups, Roles and Tenancies for the user.
Groups are broad categories of Admin features; Roles provide access control at a more detailed level. In the cases where there is both a Group and a set of Roles, such as Prism – Moderation, if you select the Group then the user will have all of the Roles for that Group, regardless of whether you explicitly select them. So if, for example, you only want the user to be able to moderate lists but not reviews or tags, then select only the Role Prism – Moderation – Lists, and not the Group Prism Moderation.
For products where Admin Groups and Roles are defined (currently only Prism), you must select at least one Group or Role. If you select a tenancy for any other product then the user will have access to all of the Admin features for that tenancy.
