Users

You can add users and manage their permissions in the Adobe Admin Console.

NOTE

Properties and Permissions functionality is available as part of the Target Premium solution. They are not available in Target Standard without a Target Premium license.
You can tell whether your organization has a Standard or Premium license by clicking the Administration link at the top of the Target UI.

  • Target Standard Customers: If you see the Users tab (Administration > Users) (and not the Properties tab), your organization has a Target Standard license. Target Standard customers should follow the instructions in this article to add users and assign permissions in the Adobe Admin Console.

  • Target Premium Customers: If you see the Users tab and the Properties tab (Administration > Properties), your organization has a Target Premium license. Target Premium customers should follow the instructions in Enterprise user permissions and Configure enterprise permissions to add users and assign permissions in the Adobe Admin Console.

For detailed information about how to manage users and permissions, see Manage products and profiles in the Enterprise & Teams User Guide.

When you get started with Adobe Target, you will find IDs (ending in Adobe.com) pre-populated in your Adobe Experience Cloud account. These IDs are for members of Adobe teams so that they can assist you with your new account and with your use of Adobe Target, should you need help. To get assistance, reach out to your Adobe teams in the usual way.

You will not see the new user listed on the Users page until the user logs in using his or her Adobe Experience Cloud account and then logs in to Target Standard/Premium.

By default all Target users start with observer permissions.

Admin users are identified in the Users list. Contact one of the system admin users if you need your access level changed.

View user information from within Target

You can view a list of your current users in your Target environment, including their roles per workspace and email addresses directly from inside Target.

To view the Users page, click Administration > Users.

User list from within Target

NOTE

To manage existing user or to add new users, you must use the Adobe Admin Console, as explained below.

Access the Adobe Admin Console

For tasks performed in the Adobe Admin Console, access the console by following these steps:

  1. From within Target, click Administration > Users > Users Management.

    Or

    Go to https://adminconsole.adobe.com/enterprise/, then sign in using your Adobe ID, if you have not already logged in.

  2. (Conditional) If you have access to the Admin Console for Enterprise for more than one organization, click the user avatar in the right corner or the top navigation bar, then select the desired organization.

Add users

All user management must be performed in the Adobe Admin Console for Enterprise. However, all of your existing users in Target will be migrated from Target to the Admin Console for Enterprise.

  1. In the Admin Console, click Users > Users to create new users or to edit existing users.
  2. Follow the instructions in Manage Users and Groups in the Experience Cloud in the Enterprise User Guide.

Create user groups

You can create user groups, such as Developers, Analysts, Marketers, Executives, etc., and then assign privileges across multiple Adobe products and workspaces. Assigning a new team member all the appropriate privileges across different Adobe products can be as easy as adding them to a specific user group.

  1. In the Admin Console, click Users > User Groups to create new user groups or to edit existing groups.
  2. Follow the instructions in Manage Users and Groups in the Experience Cloud in the Enterprise User Guide.

Specify roles and permissions

Only system admins can set user roles in Target. For example, a Standard approver user cannot change an observer to an approver, without also having Experience Cloud Admin rights.

System admin users must add users to the system. Users are not automatically added. They are invited by email from the Experience Cloud and must confirm their email addresses before their accounts are registered.

  1. In the Admin Console, click Products, then select the name of the desired product.

    Products tab

  2. Click the desired workspace (for example, Default Workspace).

    Default Workspace

    The Users tab displays all of the users in that workspace.

    configuration users

  3. Select the desired permissions role (Approver, Editor, or Observer) by using the drop-down list for each user in the Product Role column.

    Product Role drop-down list

    Role Description
    Approver Can create, edit, and activate or stop activities.
    Editor Can create and edit activities before they are live, but cannot approve the launch of an activity.
    Observer Can view activities, but cannot create or edit them.
    Publisher Similar to the Observer role (can view activities, but cannot create or edit them). However, the Publisher role has the additional permission to activate activities.

For more information, see Manage Product Permissions and Roles in the Admin Console in the Enterprise User Guide.
