Super Administrator's Guide

A Super Admin User is the highest level of admin and has proprietor-level control of the entire Hyku instance. In addition to all the functions of Repository Administrators, Super Admin can log into every tenant in the instance. For more information see the Create Super Admin User documentation.

Manage Users Across the Entire Hyku Instance

Start by navigating to your Hyku administrative home page and clicking Administrator login; this is not the homepage for a specific repository, but the Super Admin-level homepage. Depending on your configuration, this page may display all tenants with a logo for each, or not (like the version pictured).

Once logged in, you can click “Users” in the header to navigate to the Manage Users page. This page lists all of your Users in the entire repository and relevant information on their account - name, email address, and editing privileges.
