The administrator manager page allows you to add, delete and manage administrators on the system.


This feature is part of the core system and installed by default on ClearOS 5.x. Under ClearOS 6 or later, you will need to install the Administrators app from the marketplace (this feature is not available in versions of ClearOS prior to 6.)

You can find this feature in the menu system at the following location:

<navigation>System|Settings|Administrators</navigation> Version 5.x

<navigation>System|Accounts|Administrators</navigation> Version 6 and later


In some circumstances, you may want to grant access to specific reports and configuration pages in Webconfig to other users. In an example scenario, an administrator could be granted access to all the read-only reports, along with the user manager tool.

System Administrator Access

Administrator access can be enabled or disabled at any time. For example, you may only want to enable administrator access while away on vacation.

System Administrator List

You can add, delete and edit administrators on your system and specify specific access control on a per-users basis.

Selecting Access Rights

After adding or editing an administrator, you will be shown the list of all the features available in Webconfig. In the screenshot, the user guylafleur is given access to the User Manager and Group Manager. Typically, an administrator is also granted access to read-only reports, but this policy is up to you of course.
