E-commerce department managers

Here you can learn how to assign your department managers to departments containing products for which they are responsible. This prevents the department managers from accidentally modifying other products.

To allow a user, i.e., your department manager, to manage products in given departments, you need to:

  1. Assign the roles whose member the given user is appropriate E-commerce Solution permissions. Specifically, you need to assign the Read and Modify permissions for products OR data (the user is thus able to access and manage products). If you have not assigned these permissions yet and need further advice, see E-commerce permissions.

  2. Assign the user to departments whose products they should manage OR assign the roles whose member the given user is the Access all departments permission.

    If you need to allow certain department managers to access products from all departments regardless of the departments to which they are assigned, set the Access all departments permission for roles whose members these department managers are.
