Hi Bigman00!

Using the role-based system in Magento, It is easy to set permissions on a by-user basis.

Let us say you wanted to set up another user with all permissions EXCEPT the ability to add/ edit users.

First, create a role for your user. From the admin panel, go to System > Permissions > Roles. Click Add New Role on the upper right. Name the role and click Role Resources on the left. Check every box that you want this person to have access to. In our example, that would be all checked EXCEPT for System > Permissions. Click Save Role.

Next, create the user and assign the new role you created. System > Permissions > Users. Click Add New User. Enter the user info and then under User Role on the left, select the role you just created. Click Save User.

Thank you very much for your kind reply, except for create user permissions, is there a way to edit user permissions please?

I have made a mistake and set the admin resources to none and now I can not see anything in the backend.

Please advise and help, as our website is in production and here is the only source that I can get help.

Thanks

You will have to edit the database admin_user and assign the user to a role
