The best way of giving people access to your Piwik data is to let them use Piwik. Each user will be able to set up a dashboard that suits their priorities and needs. For example, your marketing department may concentrate on how people are getting to the site, whereas the website manager may need information on the website’s goals and conversion rates. When they need more information, it will only be a few clicks away.
To add users, you need to be signed in as the super user. When you are, click on Settings to access the administration area.
Then click on the Users tab, and you will see this screen:
Click Add a new user to turn the table into a form. Fill in the details and click save:

Now that you have created a new user, you can give the user access to any website you want them to be able to see or administer. By default, new users don’t have access to any website:
Make sure you have the correct website selected in the drop-down menu. In the below image, the “test” website is selected.

Now your new user can log into Piwik with the details you set and view the Piwik analytics for that website.
You can create an unlimited number of users and give them access to one or several websites.
You can also use the Piwik API to create, update, and delete users, and set permissions. This is useful to integrate Piwik with your existing customer websites automatically. Many Piwik users track hundreds or thousands of websites this way.
