What is a user?



Nothing exotic here. A user is simply an account access to log into the PIM.

One user account can only be used by one person in a company.


A user has at least:

  • a firstname
  • a lastname
  • a username
  • a password
  • an email
  • a role.

A user can belong to one or several user groups. In the Enterprise Edition, this is really useful when you want to assign them permissions regarding the products data. By default, when a user is created, he does not belong to any user group. To know more about this subject, read Build your user groups.


As a user you can…

As a user you can:

  • choose the language of your PIM interface to better understand what's going on 😉
  • choose your favorite view and working category tree to be even more productive
  • choose your favorite locale, channel and other filters when you are working on the product grid
