User Management for LivePerson Administrator

As an administrator, you can add and manage the users in your account. Users on LiveEngage have different permission sets according to their roles.

It’s also possible to create profiles, or customized permissions sets within roles, for additional user management flexibility. For further information on customizing profiles and permissions sets, read the Profiles (permissions) documentation.

  2. Click the Action menu and select Duplicate.
  3. A new user page will open for editing, with the following fields already populated:
    • Picture
    • Assigned profiles
    • Skills
    • Groups
    • Max. number of chats
    • Max. number of messaging conversations

Enable or Disable the User

  • On the Users list, click the user.
  • Click the Enable button.
  • Click Save.


You can easily search for users and their information according to their name, nickname, email address, permission set, and/or group. Simply type in the search box the target word or name and all results will be returned in the list.

NOTE: When searching for a name, first type in the last name of the user and then his/her first name to fit the format LastName, FirstName (e.g. Smith, John).

Change Password on Next Login

Safeguarding the privacy of user passwords is an important part of maintaining the security of LiveEngage accounts. When editing a user, account administrators can set a prompt to appear for the user to change their password when they next log in.

In this way, if the administrator has set a default password for a new user, or has reset the password on a user’s account, they can ensure that the user will have to change the password to one of their own choosing when they next log in.
