In PrestaShop, you can use the built-in user management system to create different user groups and assign roles, profiles, and permissions to them.
Roles: A role defines the general permissions that a user group has on the website. For example, you can create a role for “customers” that only allows them to view and purchase products, or a role for “employees” that allows them to view, edit, and delete products.
Profiles: A profile defines the specific permissions that a user group has on the website. For example, you can create a profile for “sales representatives” that allows them to view and edit products, but not delete them.
Permissions: Permission defines a specific action that a user group can perform on the website. For example, you can assign permission to a user group that allows them to create new products or another permission that allows them to view the order history of customers.
To manage roles, profiles, and permissions for different user groups in PrestaShop:
Log in to the back office of your PrestaShop website.
Go to the “Advanced Parameters” section, and select “Team”.
You can create new roles by clicking on the “Add new” button
To assign roles, profiles, and permissions to a user group, click on the “Employees” tab, then click on the “Edit” button next to the user group you want to modify.
On the edit page, you can select the role and profile you want to assign to the user group, and also you can assign permissions to a specific user by clicking on the “Permissions” tab.
Click “Save” to apply the changes.
It is important to note that you should be careful when assigning roles, profiles, and permissions to user groups, as certain actions, such as deleting products or viewing customer information, should only be allowed for trusted users.
