About administrator roles

You can share the responsibility of managing your Google enterprise account by assigning administrator roles to other users. Assigning a role grants the user access to your Google Admin console. You can make a user a super administrator who can perform all tasks in the Admin console. Or you can assign a role that limits which tasks the administrator can perform, for example, by allowing them only to create groups, manage service settings, or reset a user's password.

To get started with administrator roles:

  • Review pre-built roles
    We've created administrator roles for performing common business functions that you may be able to use out of the box—one role for managing users, another for groups, another for services, and so on.
  • Create custom administrator roles
    If the pre-built roles don't meet your needs, create your own custom roles. For each custom role, choose from the same set of privileges used in the pre-built roles, grouping them however you want.
  • Assign roles to users
    Assign administrator roles to users that let them perform the tasks you want them to manage. For roles that permit managing users, optionally assign the organizational unit you want them to manage.
