Managing admin users in Inception

Managing admin users in Inception

When someone signs up for an Inception account, that person is at that moment the only user and thereby automatically the administrator of Inception. As a result, only this person can invite users, set their permissions, set up Inception, and so on.

From a technical point of view, it also means that the e-mail address that was used for signing up to Inception cannot be used for signing up to another system such as Elvis Cloud.

Once additional users have been added, more users can be given the administrator role and current administrators can be made regular users.

This can be useful in the following situations:

  • The e-mail address that was used for signing up needs to be made available for use in a different system
  • More and/or other users need be given the role of administrator

Before you start

Before making other users admin, please be aware that they can make changes to all aspects of Inception, including:

  • Subscriptions
  • Inception setup
  • User management

Managing users

Managing users in Inception is done on the Users page in the Admin console.

To access it, click your Avatar and choose Management console. It will automatically open to the Users page.

Assigning administrator rights to another user

Step 1. Sign in to Inception as a user with administrator rights. (When no additional users have been made administrator yet, this will be the user who has signed up for the Inception account.)

Step 2. Access the Users page in the Management console.

Step 3. Select a user which is not already an administrator and at the bottom of the page click Make admin. Confirm that you want to make the change.

Removing administrator rights from a user

Step 1. Sign in to Inception as a user with administrator rights.

Note: This should be another user than the user from which the admin rights are going to be removed.

Step 2. Access the Users page in the Management console.

Step 3. Select the user from which the admin rights needs to be removed and at the bottom of the page click Remove as Admin.
