How do I manage user roles and permissions in Magento?

Managing user roles and permissions in Magento 2.4.7 is crucial for ensuring that each user has the appropriate level of access and responsibilities. Here are the steps to manage user roles and permissions:

Step 1: Access the User Roles and Permissions Section

  1. Log in to Your Magento Admin Panel:

    • Navigate to your Magento admin URL and log in with your admin credentials.
  2. Navigate to User Roles:

    • Go to System > Permissions > User Roles.

Step 2: Create a New User Role

  1. Add a New Role:

    • Click on the Add New Role button.
  2. Role Information:

    • Enter a Role Name (e.g., "Content Editor", "Sales Manager").
    • Enter a Role Description if desired.
  3. Role Resources:

    • Click on the Role Resources tab.
    • Set Resource Access to either All or Custom.
    • If you select Custom, check the boxes next to the resources you want this role to access.
  4. Save the Role:

    • Click the Save Role button.

Step 3: Assign Users to the Role

  1. Navigate to Users:

    • Go to System > Permissions > All Users.
  2. Add New User or Edit Existing User:

    • To add a new user, click on the Add New User button.
    • To edit an existing user, click on the username from the list.
  3. User Information:

    • Confirm the password by entering it again in the Password Confirmation field.
  4. Assign Role:

Step 5: Set Advanced Permissions (Optional)

If you need more granular control over permissions, you can use third-party extensions that provide advanced permissions management. These extensions allow you to set permissions on a more detailed level, such as restricting access to specific categories, products, or even actions within the admin panel.
