I am currently installing Stash for the first time and configuring setup. Should the Stash Administrator account be a new account and new email separate from my account since I am also a developer and will be making commits and pull requests? I am looking for guidance on best practice here thanks.
It is better to have one account per person and give the right level of access to individuals as needed. (e.g. if later, you want to have more admins, they should not share the same user/password, if you leave and someone else becomes admin, only the right of your account and theirs are changed.)
When you install the server, create an initial admin account in the internal directory. Afterwards, connect your user directory via LDAP and give the right people admin rights. Once this is done, you can either remove the initial admin account, or disable the internal directory. If you don't have anything to connect via LDAP, you can skip all this and just create your own account in the internal directory, with admin rights right after installing the server.
I always do both. I create a global adminitrator account for emergency. And all administrators have their own account.
That way we have a fallback if the an admin has lost his password or is not reachable, we can use that to create new admins.
The administrator account can be recovered by someone who also has administrator rights to the server where Stash was installed:
The administrator account will be created with System Administrator Global permissions.
I hope it clarifies.
