Change a reseller's access to your Admin console

If your Google Workspace subscription is managed by a reseller, the reseller can access your Google Admin console and submit support cases for you. Google recommends allowing a reseller access to your subscriptions so your reseller can more easily troubleshoot any issues you might have with Google Workspace.

If you grant a reseller access to your subscriptions, they have access to these Admin console services.
