Site Admin privileges

Similar to managing user permissions in your application, you can modify privileges associated with roles, create customized roles specifically for Site Admin Users, and assign those roles to existing or new accounts.

Editing Site Admin users

You can access user management under Main Menu › Site Admin › Users › Site Admin Users.

Here, you are presented with a list of SiteAdmin users.

Each account has two actions associated with it: Edit and Delete. These actions are initially hidden within the "Actions" column and become visible when you hover your cursor over the corresponding row in the table.

To access a user's information or modify it, click on their name in the list or use the edit icon.

Edit existing Site Admin user:

You may edit basic user information as well as Site Admin application roles assigned to the user. Clicking Save saves changes. Clicking Delete removes the user from the Site Admin application.

Create a new Site Admin user:

Press on Screenshot 2023-11-21 at 11.12.25.png, in the Site Admin Users window if you need a new account to be created. 

Create a new user by providing their details in the designated fields, or assign Site Admin privileges to an existing account.

Editing Site Admin user roles

You can access role management under Main Menu › Site Admin › Users › Site Admin Roles. Here, you are presented with a list of Site Admin application roles. Initially, there is only the _Administrator role, assigned to all previously existing Site Admin users.

Actions buttons provide the following Edit, Create a copy, or Delete the role. 

Click on a role in the list to view its details edit it, or create a new role by creating a copy of an existing one (Copy Role button).

You should already be familiar with role management in your applications, so you will be familiar with the options provided here.

You may edit role names and descriptions for custom-created roles and set Auto enable new items if you want a role to be automatically granted privileges from newly installed plugins. Next, you may edit the privilege tree for the selected role.

New Privileges

Application Privileges

  • _CreateApplication: enables a user to create new applications
  • _DeleteApplications: enables a user to delete applications
  • _EditApplication: enables a user to edit application settings for any application
  • _UseImpersonatedLogin: enables a user to use the impersonated login shortcut for any application

Pages Privileges

Privileges under the Pages group in the privilege tree determine which tabs in the Site Admin application can be seen by the members of this role. Under the tab-related privileges, privileges for access to particular pages under a tab are also available.
Note that if you install a plugin that adds new tabs or pages to Site Admin, they will be visible here, too, and auto-enabled after installation for all roles with Auto enable new items checked.

For example, we may want to enable a new user to manage reports in the Site Admin application, but be unable to access other features.

1. Create a role for this purpose, naming it, for example, ReportEditor. Do not check Auto enable new items. Restrict access to the Reporting page only as below, and save.

2. Create a user and assign it only the ReportEditor role, and save.

3. When the new user logs in, only the reporting tabs under the Site Admin roles. But also this user will be considered an application administrator with the roles and privileges.
