Granting Users Administrative Access to Your Ocean Site

Ocean users with administrative privileges are able to configure tablet settings and all the settings available in the Admin view of the Ocean Portal (see our Guide to the Admin View for more details on all of these configurable options). As a result, a user with administrative privileges will be able to edit a wide variety of important features of your Ocean site. Therefore, only trusted users should be granted administrative access to your Ocean site.

Note: If you are adding a new administrative-level user to your site, you will need to follow the steps outlined in "Adding a New User to Your Site" before being able to grant them admin access by following the steps below.

To grant an existing Ocean user administrative access:

  1. Login to the Ocean Portal.
  2. Click the "Menu" button in the top left corner and select "Admin". Click the Users section (from the Admin Settings page).
  3. Locate the user(s) who you'd like to grant administrative access to.
  4. Click the checkbox beside their name, under the "Set Site Admin" column (see screenshot below). Your settings will be saved automatically.
