Managing Your BarTender Cloud Account

The Manage Cloud Account view provides administrators and non-administrators with role-specific features, as follows:

  • Administrators can use the General, Usage, Print History, Users, Groups, Roles, and BarTender Cloud API property pages to view and configure global account information; view usage statistics and print history data; manage user accounts, groups, and roles; and register a web application that can be used to access the BarTender Cloud REST API to automate printing processes.

  • All users can use the General property page to view subscription information, use the My Profile property page to update their profile information and upload a profile image for themselves, and use the BarTender Cloud API property page to manage a private access token.

Access to the BarTender Cloud REST API is included with the Automation subscription plan.
