  • How to Grant CPAdmin to another user

    Goal : To give another user access to cpadmin

    I've created a group called Super Admin - access to cpadmin is marked as "yes"
    I've changed the user to Administrator

    No access to admincp

    what am I doing wrong?
    Thanks

    Why do you create an extra group for this? If you want to add another administrator, why not simply add him to the existing administrator group?

      When you say he has no access to the admincp, do you mean he can't login to it or that there are no options in there for him? Did you set up Administrator Permissions for the user in admincp > Usergroups > Administrator Permissions?

        @TLMD - The Administrator group does not have full priveledges. I don't want to edit this group just for him. The Super Administrator group I can adjust for a few people - seperate from the "Administrator Group.

        @Lynne - Administrator permissions were setup properly. He could access the admincp, but only had four options.
        I had to edit my config.php file

        $config['SpecialUsers']['superadmins'] = '1,2,3';

        The numbers represent the user id's in whom you are granting "super admin" access too. This enables ALL AdminCP features to specified users. This was what I wanted and needed.
        Even if I enabled everything in the Administrator Group - you still don't have full access to everything.

          Administrator Permissions are granted on an individual basis, not by group. We don't even ship with a Super Administrator usergroup. You can adjust permissions under Usergroups -> Administrator Permissions. All Administrators will be listed.

          This actually has nothing to do with Administrator Permissions. Those are set in the AdminCP under Usergroups -> Administrator Permissions.

          It is actually considered a bug that adding a person to this list gives them more access than it should. We recommend not adding people here and to keep the list as short as possible.

            Do you *want* him to be a SuperAdmin? Or do you just want him to see the administrator panel correctly (with all the features on the left)? If it's the later, then you need to give him Administrator Permissions in admincp > Usergroups > Administrator Permissions

              I've done that, but he doesn't have all the access, aka he can't access hooks and plugins, etc.
              I don't want people to have "superadmin" - but I can't get him to have full access unless he's set in the config.

                You need to give him all of the permissions then. He'll get them, if you edit it correctly.

                  Ok, that works, thanks.

                  I was told via ticket to do it via the config ( this was my first reply I got to my inquiry )
                  I've since removed him from the config, and checked off everything in the permissions area for the "super adminstrator" group I created for him.
                  Will see what happens.
                  Thanks guys.
