Adding or removing an administrative user

An administrator can make any other user an administrator—or remove their administrator permissions—by using administrator commands in the Terminal application.

A user can also be designated as a superuser or as staff, giving them greater administrative privileges within the system.

Designating a user as an administrator/superuser

To designate a user as an administrator and superuser:

/opt/wakari/wakari-server/bin/wk-server-admin superuser --add <username>

NOTE: Replace <username> with the actual username.

EXAMPLE: To give administrative privileges to the user named “jsmith” and set them as a superuser, run:

/opt/wakari/wakari-server/bin/wk-server-admin superuser --add jsmith

Removing an administrator/superuser

To remove a user’s administrative privileges:

/opt/wakari/wakari-server/bin/wk-server-admin superuser --remove <username>

NOTE: Replace <username> with the actual username.
