Creating the First Administrator Account

If you are the first person to access an account on the Admin Portal, you can promote yourself to be the first administrator, provided:

  • The account is your primary account.
  • The account has assets.
  • You have a product registered for the account.

If you are not associated with the account, or if the account does not have assets, contact the SOLIDWORKS Customer Center.

To assign yourself as the first administrator of an account:

  1. Sign into, and under your profile name, expand the list and select Admin Portal.

    The Welcome page informs you that there are no current administrators.

  2. Review and accept the terms, conditions, and responsibility for managing the SOLIDWORKS produce license assignments.
  3. Click Promote me to Administrator.
