How do I remove an Admin role or change an Admin's password?

Removing the Site-Admin Role Privilege

 

Community Weaver 2 protects against accidental and unauthorized changes to members who have been granted certain roles.  As members move out of roles or transfer to another TimeBank, or Drupal developers rotate in and out of your TimeBank, you may need to remove their Admin role.  You may also wish to change passwords for Admin accounts used by non-member Drupal developers.  These instructions allow you to make these kinds of changes.

 

Procedure Steps:

 

  1. Navigate to the Admin Menu Bar, select User Management - Permissions
  2. Scroll down to the User Protect Module section – make sure Administer User Protect is enabled for your SA role, save any permission changes
  3. Navigate back to the Admin Menu Bar, select User Management – User protect – Protected Roles
  4. Uncheck the Roles and/or Password check box for TBUSA Site admin and click Save Configuration
  5. From the Control Panel select Edit Roles/Permissions of Multiple Users
  6. Find the member who’s Site Admin role you wish to remove, put a check in the account selection box
  7. Use the pull down Update Options function, scroll to the Remove a Role section and click the role you wish to remove
  8. Click Update
  9. If changing an account Password, click the Edit button to the right of account name under the Operations column.  This takes you directly to account maintenance
  10. Type a new password in both fields, be sure to write it down someplace where you can easily retrieve it when you need it again 
  11. Scroll to the bottom and click Save
  12. Have the member/account login and make sure everything works as expected
  13. Now you will need to put the protection back, so repeat steps 3 and 4 to re-enable protections
