This section contains guidance for administrators as they configure and customize their installation and projects.

The user who installs LabKey Server becomes the first Site Administrator and has administrative privileges across the entire site. The top level administrator on a cloud-hosted Sample Manager or Biologics LIMS system is the first Application Administrator.

The first Administrator invites other users and can grant this administrative access to others as desired. Learn more about privileged roles in this topic: Privileged Roles

Project and Folder Administrators have similar permissions scoped to a specific project or folder.


Testing Your Site

When administering a production server, it is good practice to also configure and use staging and test servers for testing your applications and upgrades before going live.
