    Manage Admin Users

    The software comes preloaded with one default administrator account:

    Email: admin@aspdotnetstorefront.com
    Password: Admin$11
    You will be forced to change the default password immediately. We recommend that you create your own administrative account and then immediately delete the default account. It is part of your duty of care that you should restrict the number of administrative accounts to a minimum.

    Upon installation, you may login as an administrator by using the preceding credentials. For security purposes, AspDotNetStorefront immediately requires you to change the default password. Once you have changed the default password and successfully logged into the Admin Console, you should create a new user (a.k.a contact) with valid email addresses and personalized passwords. In many cases, it will also be necessary to create/remove additional admin accounts.

    Adding an Admin Account

    1. Admin accounts are basically customer accounts that have been promoted to have special access. If the account you want to use as a new admin has not already been created, do so first. This can be done by registering an account through the front end exactly as a customer work, or by creating the account through the admin console at Contacts > Create Contact.

    2. Once the account is created, look it up in the admin console under Contacts > Manage Contacts. Click the Name to edit the contact.

    3. At the bottom of the Edit Contact page, within the Tools section, click either the Set Admin or Set Super Admin button to promote the customer to an admin account. Super admins have access to do everything in the admin site. Regular admin accounts are restricted from changing certain Settings and from promoting/demoting other admin users.

    4. New for v10 - when a new admin account is created, it will no longer set "Can View Credit Card Numbers" to TRUE. We strongly advise you to look back through pre-existing admin accounts, if any, and uncheck this box unless you have a business 'need to know.'


    Removing an Admin Account

    To demote an administrative account to a regular customer account, look up the account in the admin console under Contacts, Manage Contacts, then click the Set Standard User button.
