Adding Backend Users: Elevated Permissions Required to Continue

When attempting to give someone backend access and add them as a backend user, I am getting a “Elevated Permissions Required to Continue” error. How do I elevate my permissions?

To elevate your permissions on any backend you simply access the context menu (top right corner), select Elevate permissions and then enter a message as to why you are accessing the specific backend. (This is a standard auditing feature).

Please see this entry on the various backend user permission profiles for additional information
