The Hub 2.0 Users & Roles feature allows WPMU DEV account holders to give multiple users controlled access to the Hub, including users who are not WPMU DEV members.

The level of Hub access you grant to additional users can include as few or as many Hub features as you wish.

IMPORTANT

Note that the access you grant is restricted to Hub features only. It does not grant users access to your WPMU DEV account, or any of the other features of your account (like live-chat support).

NOT A WPMU DEV MEMBER?

If you’re not a WPMU DEV member, visit Your All-In-OneWordPress Platform to learn the benefits of membership and to sign up for a free trial.

Hub 2.0 users can be configured to access as much or as little of the Hub as needed. Hub 2.0 users do not have access to the wp-admin area, or backend, of connected websites via their Hub user credentials.

The Hub user feature allows WPMU DEV account holders to provide access to the Hub for users who do not necessarily require access to the admin side of websites, an account manager or client, for example. At the same time, wp-admin users who are also Hub users have a powerful set of additional tools at their disposal.

HUB 2.0 ONLY

The Users feature can be accessed, and Hub users created, from Hub 2.0 only. Once created, Hub users can navigate between the classic Hub and Hub 2.0 if they wish.

Defining Access

Before creating users, it’s helpful to understand the various ways access is granted and controlled.

  • By Site – Users can be granted access to the Hub area for as many or as few sites as desired.
  • By Area – Users can be granted access to some Hub areas and restricted from others.
  • By Task – Users can be granted authority to perform some tasks in those areas to which they have access but restricted from performing other tasks.
  • View only – Users can be granted permission to view Hub screens but restricted from changing any settings on those screens.

Users with access to all areas and tasks for all connected sites can be configured very quickly, as can users with view-only permissions. Users with limited access or control require more time to configure and may involve creating a custom user role, as explained in the Users and Roles sections below.

Location

The Users & Roles screens can be accessed by clicking the menu tab at the top of any Hub 2.0 screen.

users-roles

The Users & Roles area consists of four primary screens:

  • Users – Create, modify, or remove users.
  • Roles – Create, modify, and remove custom user roles.
  • Sites – Create users on a site-by-site basis.
  • Settings – Customize the name and logo included in the confirmation email sent to newly-created users.

Hub2 users and roles screens tabs

The Documentation link opens this usage guide.

The features of each screen are discussed in the sections below.

The Users screen lists created users with options for granting and changing permissions. If you haven’t created a user yet, we recommend reading the Creating Users section of this guide before proceeding.

Hub2 users list

The Users list includes:

  • Name – The username given to a role when it was created and the avatar, if one exists, for the account connected to it. Click the column title to reorder the list in alphabetical or reverse alphabetical order.
  • Email – The email address of the connected account.
  • Role – The role assigned to that user.
  • Sites – The number of sites a user can access. Hover over the number to see a list of those sites. Click the column title to reorder the list based on the number of sites.
  • Status – Active indicates a user has confirmed the email invitation and connected to the user role. Pending indicates the email invitation has not yet been confirmed.
  • Delete – The trashcan icon allows you to delete a user. Deleting a user does not delete the role associated with it. New users can be created and given the same role.

14.2.1 Managing Existing Users

Link to chapter 2

To modify an existing user, click anywhere within the row for that user to open the Manage access to sites modal. You can edit the Name of the user as well as add any Notes. The sites that this user can access will be listed, with checkmarks indicating sites the user can access, and plus (+) signs indicating sites to which the user does not have access but can be added.

manage user access to sites

Choose Access All Sites and the user will be able to access all sites connected to the user’s Hub. Note that this only applies to current sites. If you want the user to have access to all current sites as well as all future sites, please add the Access to all sites capability to the user’s role. You can find more information on the Access to all sites capability here.

access all sites for user

To provide access to only some of these sites, choose Access to Selected Sites and then click the plus (+) sign next to the sites for which access is desired.

Click the “View & Edit All” dropdown to see the available role options for this user. The dropdown menu will display the default roles View & Edit-All and View Only-All and any custom roles that have been created. Simply click the desired role to assign it to the current user.

You can also remove the user by clicking Delete user.

After making changes, scroll to the bottom of the modal and click the Update button to save your changes or click Cancel to close without saving.

14.2.2 Creating Users

Link to chapter 2

If you haven’t created a Hub user, click the Add first User button to open the user creation modal. Subsequent users can be created using the New user button.

Hub2 create first user

Configuring a new Hub user involves:

  • Email Address – Users are invited to accept Hub access in a confirmation email and must confirm the invite before access is granted. Each user must be invited individually, although multiple users can be assigned the same user role.
  • Name – Give your user a name to help distinguish it from others in your list.
  • Select sites – Choose the websites that the user can manage in the Hub.
  • Select user role – The scope of access is determined by the role assigned to Hub users when they are created. Choose a default role or create and assign a custom role, as discussed in the Roles section of this guide.
  • Notes – Add any notes or extra information related to the user here.

invite new user

DID YOU KNOW?

WPMU DEV members are authorized up to 10 free email accounts that can be configured in minutes to display the member’s domain in the email address. See our Email Hosting product page for details.

Select Sites

After entering the intended user’s email address, click the Select sites dropdown menu to choose which sites this user can manage in the Hub.

Select All websites to grant Hub access to all sites connected to the current Hub account, or select individual sites to limit access to a specific site(s). If you wish to create a user with customized access privileges, see the Roles section below for guidance on creating custom roles.

select sites for new user

Select user role

Hub 2.0 users have two default roles available, plus any custom role(s) you may have already created. You also have the option to create a new custom user role right from this interface:

  • View and Edit – All – User can access and modify every Hub feature for the selected sites.
  • View Only – All – User can view every Hub screen for the selected sites but cannot modify any settings.
  • Create Custom User Role – User access can be as narrowly or as broadly defined as necessary using custom roles. See the Create a custom role section for guidance on creating a custom user role.

select user role for new user

Once the user has been identified by email address, site access determined and a user role assigned, click the Invite button to send the confirmation email. The user Name and Notes are optional.

14.2.3 Confirming Users

Link to chapter 2

New user accounts are not active until invited users click the Confirm button contained in the invitation email.

Hub2 new user confirmation

Clicking the Confirm button will open a new tab in their browser and direct users to one of two screens, depending on whether or not they are a current WPMU DEV member.

Current Members

A current WPMU DEV member who confirms a Hub user invite will be directed to a WPMU DEV login screen and prompted to log in with an existing username and password. Once logged in, the new account will be added to the existing account, and the member can move from one account to the other as necessary.

To switch between a member account and a Hub user account, click the WPMU DEV profile picture in the righthand corner and then select Switch Account.

Hub2 user profile

Non-member users

Users who are not current WPMU DEV members will be directed to our Free Account setup screen and prompted to create a free account. Once the free account is created, the user will have access to both the user account and their own Hub account.

Hub2 non member user free account

Free Account Policy

Hub 2.0 Users have access to a Hub account of their own, independent of their user accounts. The free account will remain free as long as the user does not wish to add sites to their own Hub.

If a user does add a site to their own Hub on any of the standalone hosting plans or as a paid member on any membership plan, they will have full access to their own site(s) in their own Hub, and will continue to have the same management access to your sites as you have granted them in your team.

It’s important to note however that if you wish to transfer one of your sites to such a user, for example if they should have access to support for that site, the site would need to be first disconnected from your account before it can be connected to theirs.

There are two default roles available in The Hub 2.0 Roles tab, plus the option to create custom user roles:

  • View & Edit – All – User can access and modify every Hub feature for the selected sites.
  • View Only – All – User can view every Hub screen for the selected sites but cannot modify any settings.
  • Create custom user role – User access can be as narrowly or as broadly defined as necessary using custom roles. See the Create a custom role section for guidance on creating a custom user role. Once created, new custom roles will appear in the drop-down menu along with the default options and can be assigned to other users without having to re-create the access parameters.

Create custom role in Hub2 Users

Click View & Edit – All to give the user unrestricted access to all sites connected to a given Hub. Users with this role can add and delete sites, modify any setting, and perform most of the same actions as the member who owns this Hub.

Click View Only – All to allow a user to view all the Hub screens for every site connected to a given Hub but without the authority to modify anything.

Detailed guidance on creating custom roles is covered in the next section.
