Create New Admin User

Step 1: Configure User Information Step 2: Determine User Role

Step 1: Configure User Information

On the Admin panel, click system. In the permission section, select add new user.

Step 2: Determine User Role

In the panel on the left, choose user role . The grid lists all the existing roles. Initially, the only role available is Administrators.


Procedure The procedure involves two steps: adding the user role, then adding the user. 1: Add user role If you wish to grant complete admin access to the user, you may skip to 2: Add user instead of creating a specific role. This will, however, involve granting the new user complete admin access and therefore access to all of your store's most critical areas. Use care when assigning the Administrator role. Log in to your Magento Dashboard. On the left, click System > User Roles (Figure 1).

Figure 1. Magento Dashboard; System > User Roles. Click Add New Role (Figure 2).

Figure 2. Roles page; Add New Role button. On the New Role page, enter the desired name in the Role Name field and your current password in the Current Admin Password field (Figure 3).

Figure 3. New Role page; Role Name and Current Admin Password fields. On the left, click Role Resources (Figure 4).

Attention: In Step 6, you will choose which permissions to assign to the new role. If you are unsure, consult with your developer. As always, take care when assigning permissions, as many grant secure access to critical areas of your store. From the Resource Access drop-down list, select Custom if not already selected. Assign permissions as desired.

Attention: In Step 5 below, if you assign the default Administrators role instead of a custom role, that user will have complete access to all of your store's most critical areas. Use care when assigning this role. In the Assigned column, select the check box corresponding to the role you created in the “1: Add user role” section (Figure 11). If you want to grant complete admin access, select the Administrators check box.

Figure 11. Sample new_role check box. Click Save User. If the procedure was successful, you will now see the admin user represented in User list on the User page (Figure 12).
