As your website grows you may find yourself hiring employees to fill various administrative roles. Typically these employees do not need full access to your website’s entire back-end admin area.
Admin Role Permissions allows the website owner to define specific types of admins (moderator, billing specialist, etc.). Once defined, you can restrict these admins to specific admin areas.
Website administrators and their permissions are key components of a website’s security. Admins are the people you allow to log in to the back-end management area of your website. Roles are their functions, and their permissions define what authorizations those functions have.
Establishing these admin roles and specifying their permissions is important if you have other people managing your website, such as newly hired employees, outside agents/contractors, a team of more than 2-3 people, etc. Protect your website’s security and integrity by limiting your administrators’ back-end access.
As the website owner, you will first have the option to assign admin accounts to pre-made default roles such as the ones listed below. Alternatively, you can create a new custom admin role, for example, Billing Specialist. This admin role does not need access to every part of your website’s back-end. A Billing Specialist would only need access to the Billing admin pages – Manage Products; Transaction History; Coupon Codes; and Payment Gateways. You can grant the Billing Specialist admin role access to these pages in your website’s back-end while restricting them from accessing all other back-end pages. Once set, you can assign this employee’s admin account the role of Billing Specialist. Now they will only be able to access those approved Billing pages.
