You can grant other people access to your Linode Cloud Manager account by creating users and assigning permissions to restrict access to certain areas of the control panel. Adding users and configuring permissions is useful for groups that need to grant all team members access to the Linode Cloud Manager, or organizations that just want their billing department to have a separate account to receive invoices and billing information.

A single user was automatically created for your account when you signed up for Linode. If you are the only person accessing the Linode Cloud Manager, you do not need to create any additional users on your account.

View All Users

  1. Log in to the Cloud Manager and select Account from the sidebar menu.

  2. Navigate to the Users & Grants tab to display all users on the account. Your user account must have full unrestricted access to view this page.

Each user is listed in the table along with its username, email address, and the level of account access (full or limited).

Add a User

To provide another person with access to your Linode account, you can create another user. Each user can be created with full unrestricted access or limited restricted access. For more details on user permissions, see Set User Permissions.

  1. Navigate to the Users & Grants page in the Cloud Manager. See View All Users.

  2. Click the Add a User button to open the new user panel.

  3. Enter the Username and Email for the user.

  4. Toggle the Account Access button to give the user full or limited access to account features.

  5. Click Submit. The user will receive an email with instructions on creating a password and logging in to the account.

If you granted the user full access, the account is created and no further action is required. If you granted the user limited access, continue with setting user permissions.
