Change User Account to a Service Account


To create a Service Account, you first need to create a normal account that is either an Administrator or Power User. An Administrator account is required for use with Storage Sync, Turbo, or Egnyte Protect. Power User accounts can be used for Public API applications or FTP to limit the account to a specific set of folders and to control permissions.

Change to Service Account

  1. Create a new user.
  2. Locate the user on the Users & Groups page and hover over their account.
  3. Click Details.

  4. Select the Profile tab from the left and click Treat as a service account.


  5. Click Confirm on the confirmation page to finalize the change.
