Adding a user to the admin console

This topic describes how to add an admin console user.

Create a Console User who can login to and access the Admin Console and its various features. Or, create a Website User who can access the Commerce site and purchase items. An ISC best practice is to pre-populate users through an ERP integration, but users also can be created manually.

Create a console user

  1. To create a console user manually, go to Administration > Console Users.
  2. Click Add Console Users.
  3. Fill in the appropriate user information, including username and email address.
  4. At the bottom of the screen, select the user's role or roles. Users can be assigned one or many roles depending on business needs.
  5. Click Save .
  6. A notification appears at the top of the screen, with the option to send an activation email. The user cannot log in until they click the link in the activation email and create a password. Once an activation email has been sent, send it again by clicking Resend Activation Email. Once the user has activated their account, this button disappears.
