What does site ownership imply?
In FotoWare SaaS, the person who first signs up as admin on the site also becomes the site owner. Only one user account can be assigned as site owner, and that user has access to manage users and groups, which indirectly means that the site owner can assign all privileges on the site.
For sites that are upgraded from an earlier version where the concept of site owner did not exist, a site owner must be set. Contact your FotoWare partner or FotoWare Support to have the site owner set. When that is done, the site owner will have the possibility to transfer ownership to another account directly from the user management console.
How to transfer site ownership?
Important: A user who transfers ownership of the site to another user will not be able to undo the action afterwards. He will lose access to administrative features that are exclusive to the site owner, and only the new site owner can transfer ownership later. Care is advised when using this function.
To transfer ownership of the site to a new user, log in as the current site owner and open the user and group management from the Tools menu. Locate the user to whom site ownership should be transferred, for example by using the search function, and click on the Set as site owner link that appears when hovering over the user name. You will be asked to confirm transfer of site ownership. Continuing will revoke site ownership from your user and transfer it to the selected user.
FotoWare tenants without a site owner set
FotoWare tenants deployed before the site owner concept was introduced will have to have a site owner assigned before user management is made available. If the FotoWare tenant in question was deployed prior to July 2018, contact your FotoWare Partner to have a site owner set on the tenant. It can be set in the Operations Center under Settings > Site Identification > Site Owner.
