Add a New User

A user with the required permissions can invite other users to collaborate on a stack.

Note: By default, the Owner, Admin, and Developer roles have the right to invite other users to a stack. A user added to a stack can access and perform actions across branches present in the stack as per the roles assigned to them. Refer to our Global Modules document for more information.

To add a new user in the stack, log in to your Contentstack account, and perform the following steps:

  1. Go to the stack where you want to add a user
  2. Click the “Settings” icon on the left navigation panel, and select Users & Roles. This will open the Users & Roles page where you can see the list of all the existing users (collaborators) of the stack along with their details.
  3. Click on the Invite User button located at the top right corner of the page.
  4. The Invite User forms opens up where you can add the following details:
    1. Email: Enter the email address(es) of the user(s) you want to invite and share the stack with
    2. Roles: Select the role(s) that you want to assign to the new user
    3. Message (optional): Enter a short message that goes along with the invitation to the userAdd_a_New_User_no_highlight.png
