Create an administrator role for a developer

If you want a developer to manage your third-party integration, they need a user account in your organization. You can then create an administrator role with Cloud Search privileges and assign the developer to that role.

1. Add a user account for a developer

See Add users individually.

2. Create a Cloud Search role and assign it to the developer

In the Admin console, the Cloud Search administrator role lets the developer see only the information and perform only the tasks associated with Cloud Search. They can create, edit, and delete Cloud Search data sources, identity sources, and search applications. Learn more about administrator privileges.
