Scaling up an operation often requires several collaborators to help enable and support it. However, when talking about security, it’s important to track and record the users who make changes, so you have insights to take actions in order to fix any issue, or just to monitor your application.

Once you've gone through this article you'll be able to create admin users for your collaborators, instead of using the main account's credentials to log in.


1. Understanding admin users

The admin user module allows you to give your collaborators a profile, separate to the owner account, with full access capabilities except to the "plans & billing" section. Additionally, you, as the owner of the account, will have logs of each user's actions.

2. How to create an admin user

1. Log into your Ubidots Account

2. Open your profile settings and select "admin users".

3. Click on the plus button, located at the upper right cornenr, to create an admin user.

  • Type the username and email of your collaborator.

  • Switch the toggle on to send an invitation to your collaborator via email.

  • Click on the green check mark to confirm.

Once the creation process is completed, you'll see the new admin user in a list. You can take actions over an admin user, such as:

  • Edit its username and email.

  • Change its password.

  • Visualize its activity log.

  • Delete it.

3. Accessing as an admin user

1. To access as an admin user you must go to the Ubidots sign in page.

2. Enter your username and password.
3. Click on "Sign in to an existing workspace" in order to enable the workspace text box.
4. Enter the workspace name (the username of the account owner).
5. Click on "sign in".

3.1. Understanding workspaces

A workspace makes reference to the username of the account owner. You must provide the one to which the admin user belongs to when accessing as an admin user.
