View role assignments & privileges

As an administrator for your organization’s Google Workspace or Cloud Identity account, you can see a list of all the admin roles and privileges assigned to a user or group. You can also see a list of all the direct assignments for a given role. This information can help you to quickly determine a user’s or group’s level of administrative access to your organization’s Google Workspace account and services.

You must be signed in as a super administrator for this task.
