Managing Users

Roles required

Managing users can be done by users with either the Administrator or User Administrator role.

All users can use Single Sign On with their NetID via the Central Authentication System (CAS), so there is no need to have unique usernames and passwords.

How to Add a User

  1. Click on People -> Add CAS User(s)
  2. Type the person's NetID in the CAS username(s) field. You can add as many as you'd like, one NetID per line.
  3. Select the desired Role(s).
    Note: The roles are additive, so most Content Administrators will also need the Content Editor role if they will need to create or edit content.
  4. Save.


The roles available in Quickstart have been carefully crafted to balance the access needed to do your work with the security principle of least privilege.

The following roles are available:

  • Content Editor – can create and edit site content
  • Content Administrator – can manage menus, taxonomy terms, and redirects
  • User Administrator – can create new user accounts and assign most roles
  • Administrator – can perform security updates, make customizations, and administer site (developer staff only)
