System administrators are those users who have the right to do any necessary settings to the system. You can have multiple system administrators and their list can be accessed by navigation to the System ⇒ Security ⇒ System administrators button, on the System administrators page:
For adding a new system administrator click on +new. With this action, the Create new role association dialog will open.
When adding a new system administrator to the system you have 3 options, so called invitation types which describe how to add him/her. Select System administrator from the Role dropdown list. Now, roll down the Invitation type dropdown list, and select the method, how you would like to add the administrator. There are 3 options: 1) Create new, 2) Search for existing or 3) Send an invitation.
- Create new
If you have selected the Create new option you must enter the Display name for the new administrator, for example “System administrator”. From the Login type list select the already configured authentication provider that he/she will use when logging in the system. Only provider configurations set up on the “Login providers” page can be selected here (Forms and Windows is enabled by default). Then fill the credentials (if Forms type was chosen then both Login name and Password) and click OK. (If you would like to use login providers which differ from the providers in the Login type list, refer to section “Login providers” and configure new providers).
- Search for existing
To the Search for existing user* field fill in part of name of the already existing user who you want to find. After you have selected the user click OK.Note: please keep in mind that Search for existing user* invitation type is searching among users who are already present between the contentACCESS users. In contrast to this the Send invitation invitation type can be sent to any potential users/administrators who are not members of contentACCESS system yet.
- Send invitation
This option enables to invite a new member to whom you decided to grant system administration permissions. Select the System administrator role type, enter the E-mail address* and fill the Additional message* textbox which will be included in the email message that the invited user will receive from you. Then click OK.
For deleting administrators select the administrator from the list, click on the ellipsis () to open the context menu, and delete the user.Note: It is good to know that from security reasons it is impossible to delete all system administrators from the list of users. It is possible to delete users with system admin permissions except of the default system administrator.
