Distributor Admins of the management app are able to create and manage their own users. These users are separate from the users of the E-Catalog, and can have separate permissions. To get started. click the `Admin` component in the sidebar, then click on the users tab.
Once in the users tab, you can manage users in a number of ways. By clicking the `Add User` button, you may add new users to your management app. After creating a user you should set their roles, or they will only be given access to the home page. You may also manage existing users by clicking on the user you wish to manage, then by clicking on one of the action buttons to the left of the user.
|Edit User This will allow you to edit various attributes of a user, as well as set user roles.|
|Reset Password Admins are allowed to reset user passwords in the case of a forgotten password.|
|Delete User This will remove the user from the management app, revoking their access to the site. This action is permanent, and cannot be undone!||
The management app is designed around a role-based system. Roles determine which components users are allowed to access within the management app. When a user is created, s/he does not have any roles, and is only allowed to access the home page. You may give them access by selecting your new user from the users table, then by clicking the `edit` button.
Here is the role manager. Each checkbox corresponds to a component the user is allowed to access. If the box is not checked, the component is hidden from the user. There are two exceptions to this rule:
- The home component serves as the landing page for users, and cannot be hidden from users.
- The "DistributorAdmin" role not only gives users access to the admin component, but also grants access to all other components in the management app. Be careful when giving users the "DistributorAdmin" role as admins are able to reset passwords and create users.
