How To Add Users In Magento 2 Admin Panel

In the default installation of Magento 2, an Admin account is created that gives you full administrative access. First, you have to create another user account with full Administrator access, so you can use one account for your everyday Administrative activities, and reserve the other as a “Super Admin” account in case you lost access to your main account.

For a team of administrators, you can create a separate account for each, and set restrict access based on their business. To do that, you have to create a role with limited scope and access only to the necessary resources and assign the role to an admin account. After assigned to a restricted role, admin users can see and change data only for websites or stores that are associated with the role, but cannot make changes to any global settings or data.

How To Translate Content Pages In Magento 2

When you have set the locale for each store view to a different language, and your store has multiple views in other languages, the result is a partially translated site. In the next step, you have to translate every page that is available from the specific store view. Each view that includes a translated version of the page displays in the Store View column of the Manage Pages list.  

In the progress of translate content pages in Magento 2, you have to create a new page that has the similar URL Key to the original one but is assigned to a specific store view.

Follow these steps to create a translated page for a view:

How to Changing Scope in Magento 2 Basic Configuration

The location of the Store View selection is in the upper-left corner of Admin pages that filters the view of the page for a specific scope, and also sets the value of some entities that are used by Magento. Each level of the hierarchy is listed by name and is used to change scope to another level. Any settings that do not represent the current scope will be grey out by the system, and only represents the current scope setting. The scope is firstly set to “Default Config”. For restricted access Admin Users, the list of available store views includes only those to which the user has permission to access. According to the current scope, the default setting can be either applied or overridden by using the checkbox on the right of many configuration settings. When you mark the checkbox, the field value cannot be changed. To change the current value, first, you have to clear the checkbox, and then enter the new value. Whenever you change the scope, you must confirm. The checkbox label changes as indicated by the current range, and always alludes to the parent level which is one stage up in the order. The parent level is the holder for all items which are lower than that level, and this is the reason why the value from the parent level is inherited unless it is overridden.

For each field that requires being an update on the page, repeat this process

For this situation, the store level is skipped because it is understood to apply to the default store that is related to the site.
