How to manage users in Bolt

Updated on Dec 10, 2015

This tutorial will review the user management in Bolt. We will follow the steps on how to create new users on your website or manage the existing ones.

In Bolt, you can create users with varying site management permissions. The purpose of the user system is that you can see all the alterations that each user has performed, which are stored in a log file. This makes it easy to track your development team and see who is responsible for an occurence of an issue, if any.

You will first have to log into your website as administrator. Move your mouse pointer to the Configuration item on the left-side menu and then select the Users & Permissions option.

Access Users and Permissions Section in Bolt

Click on the Add new user button on the left side of the page.

Add New User in Bolt

Now Bolt will open a new user creation form, where you just have to input the data of the new user, along with the permissions that you wish him to have. The options are:

  • Username - Set the username of the new account
  • Password - Set the password for the new account
  • Password (confirmation) - Enter the password again for verification
  • Email - Set the email address of the new account
  • Display Name - Set a display name for your new account
  • User Account is Enabled - Set the account as enabled, by selecting Yes.
  • Assigned Roles - Choose the roles of the new account

Informational Details

You need to skip the Last Seen and Last IP fields as they are informative only.

When you are ready wtih the options above, simply click on the Save User button to create it.
