Warning: This documentation is for a pre-release version of pgAdmin 4
When invoking pgAdmin in desktop mode, a password is randomly generated, and
then ignored. If you install pgAdmin in server mode, you will be prompted for
an administrator email and password for the pgAdmin client.
When you authenticate with pgAdmin, the server definitions associated with that
login role are made available in the tree control. An administrative user can
use the User Management dialog to
Use the Filter by email search field to find a user; enter a user’s email
address to find a user. If the user exists, the User Management table will
display the user’s current information.
To add a user, click Add to add new role.
Provide information about the new pgAdmin role in the row:
Click in the Email field, and provide an email address for the user; this
address will be used to recover the password associated with the role should
the password be lost.
Use the drop-down listbox next to Role to select whether a user is an
Administrator or a User.
Select Administrator if the user will have administrative privileges
within the pgAdmin client.
Select User to create a non-administrative user account.
Move the Active switch to the No position if the account is not currently
active; the default is Yes. Use this switch to disable account activity
without deleting an account.
Use the New password field to provide the password associated with the user
specified in the Email field.
Re-enter the password in the Confirm password field.
To discard a user, and revoke access to pgAdmin, click the trash icon to the
left of the row and confirm deletion in the Delete user? dialog.
Users with the Administrator role are able to add, edit and remove pgAdmin
users, but otherwise have the same capabilities as those with the User role.
