Users and User Groups

You must create Admin accounts in order for admins, customer service representatives, sales representatives, and other users to access the Kibo Composable Commerce Platform. This guide explains how to create and invite users, as well as organize them into user groups and block IPs.

For more information about roles and the behavior permissions that control each user's access level, see the User Roles guide.

View and Invite Users

Once you define your organization's roles, you can invite specific users to your account. Go to System > Permissions > Users to view the list of current users.

If searching for an existing user, use the search bar or expand the drop-down menu to filter the results by first name, last name, or email address.

User Groups

Users can be organized into groups at Settings > Permissions > Groups. Create groups and assign existing users to them in order to create sets of similar users such as regional administrators, sales managers, etc. depending on your needs.

At the moment, user groups will have no effect. They are intended for use with the B2B feature alongside custom BPMs, which are not yet supported. In the future, this capability will be released and groups may also be leveraged for other use cases.
