How to create new admin user in Magento

  1. From Magento Admin panel to System→Permissions→Users
  2. Select "Root" category
  3. On top right click "Add New User"
  4. Fill in account information
  5. Click on "Save User" button

Magento offers setting up different user roles in Admin Panel that will determine different access levels.

Note that you will have automatically created administrator upon installing Magento.

But, besides that, you can add more user roles and give them permissions to access Admin Panel and make changes.

Of course, you can limit permissions and create different ones depending on the administrator, but that is a topic concerning roles, which exceeds, for now, the scope of this tutorial.

That is why, for now, we will focus on creating Admin User.

Log in to your Admin Panel, navigate to System and and click on Users under Permissions.
