Account Users

Account Users

As an account administrator or other user with the appropriate permissions, you can create additional account users for your team members, to enable collaboration and co-management of the Imperva service.

You can grant different levels of permissions and sub account access to users, based on the level of visibility and control that is required.

In this topic:


The Account Users page lists all account users.

Account admins can:

  • add and delete users
  • reset a user password
  • grant granular permissions to users, including access to account settings, control over sites and DNS zones, and control over other users and permissions
  • manage API keys for all users

Note: If you need to change the account administrator user, contact Support to request the change.
