Creating New Users

When your store is first installed, your login credentials give you full administrative access. As a best practice, one of the first things you should do is to create another user account with full Administrator permissions. That way, you can use one account for your everyday Administrative activities, and reserve the other as a “Super Admin” account in case you forget your regular credentials or they somehow become unusable.

If there are others on your team, or service providers who need access, you can create a separate user account for each, and assign a restricted role. To limit the websites or stores that admin users can access when they log in, you must first create a role with limited scope and resources. Then, you can assign the role to a specific user account. Admin users assigned to a restricted role can see and change data only for websites or stores that are associated with the role. They cannot change any global settings or data.
