User Rights Management

In order to modify user permissions, you must already have "Manage Users" permissions enabled in the Admin Rights section. Contact your administrator if you need these permissions.

User Rights

The users' rights control what they can see and do within the Partner Center. Each user account may have a unique set of rights associated to it. To manage a user's rights do the following:

  1. Login to the Partner Center
  2. Hover over your name in the top-right corner.
  3. Click on "Users" in the drop-down menu.
  4. Click on the user's name.
  5. Make needed adjustments to the User Rights at the bottom of the page.
  6. Click the "Update" at the button to save the settings.

A default set of User Rights can be automatically populated by selecting one of the six (6) templates at the top of the "Security" section:

  • Administrator
  • Power User
  • Campaign Manager
  • Affiliate Manager
  • Report Runner
  • Other

Other is a blank template for creating user permissions from scratch. After selecting a template, you can then make any needed adjustments and save the selected User Rights by clicking Update. The templates are designed to give you a set of predefined permissions. Changes to a specific user will not modify other users who have been created by a security template. Any changes to a specific user's rights will only affect that specific user and will NOT be applied globally.
