You can manage administrator accounts using Accounts option available on Settings tab.
Adding new accounts
To create new account, choose button placed on the bottom of the “Accounts” panel. A new panel will appear, where you can set up all information that is needed for this account.
While creating new account, you need to set up a Username, which should be an e-mail address and new Password that needs to match the conditions as seen in the screenshot above.

Right after that, you can choose a role for this account.
GitProtect gives you a possibility to choose between 4 different roles:
- System administrator - the most powerful and privileged account that has permissions of all lower roles. Administrators can manage data stores and system settings.
- Backup operator - account with same permissions as viewer with additional ability to create and run backup tasks
- Restore operator - account with both viewer account permissions and ability to restore data
- Viewer - least privileged account, that can’t perform any other actions than viewing the settings

The only difference between account creation and modification is that you cannot change account login.
