What does Administer Workspace mean?


Hello *,

What exactly does Administer Workspace mean? 

If an admin has admin rights and is in a user group with other admins, and also sees that he can administer the workspace, why cant the user just be able to administer the workspace?

It is understandable that the owner has control over the self destruct switch and can provide/refuse access to admins as and when they join/leave that role, but should the owner be the only person who can add users and groups?

Hi @Atharva , the team is aware of this limitation. A fix for this issue will be rolling out soon (within the next week). After that admins will be able to administer the workspace as expected.
