After clicking on Sign Up you will be directed to the SearchStax Dashboard where you can create your first deployment.


Managing Your User Profile

Log in to the SearchStax Dashboard using your username and password. The Dashboard lets you manage your SearchStax accounts, deployments, and analytics apps. This includes viewing logs, monitoring data, and configuring security settings.

By default, the user who created a SearchStax account has Admin user privileges there. An account's Admin can perform the following tasks in the account:


Adding Users

The Admin can add users to a specific account. The users will have access the the deployments created in that account. (A user can have access to deployments in multiple accounts, but will have to be added to each account separately.)

The number of users per account is determined by your plan. The standard plan permits the original user plus one other.

To add a new user to an account:

Note

Only an account's Admin user can create another Admin in that account.

The system will send a welcoming email message inviting the new user to register with SearchStax. The registration link is good for 24 hours, and can be renewed using the Bulk Actions described in the next section.

Once the user has a username and password, SearchStax will provide access to the deployments of the shared account.

Bulk User Actions

The list of users offers a Bulk Actions menu which is hidden from view until you check one of the boxes beside the user names.

SearchStax Bulk User Actions

This menu lets you perform the following actions on one or more users simultaneously:


Deleting a User

Only an Admin user can delete a user from an account. Note that this revokes a user's access to the account, but does not delete the user from the system.

To delete a user:


Updating Account Information

Users can access the SearchStax Dashboard to update their Profile Settings, and to change their passwords.
