Set up admin roles

Next, for any other administrators to use G Suite Migrate, you need to set up an admin role for them in the Google Admin console. Then, you need to make sure the Migration service is turned on for the admins. The role you give the admins depends on what you want them to do.

About the roles

With the deployment role, admins can:

  • Sign in to G Suite Migrate and perform migration tasks.
  • See the projects that they create or are added to by another user.

With the management role, admins can:

  • Sign in to G Suite Migrate and perform migration tasks.
  • View all migration projects on the platform.
  • Add themselves to any project.
  • Configure database settings and add nodes to the platform.

Note: All super administrators of your G Suite account have the management role by default.

Step 1: Create and assign roles

  1. Sign in to the Google Admin console as a super administrator.
  2. Click Admin roles.
  3. Click Create a new role.
  4. Enter a name for the role and, optionally, a description and click Continue.
  5. Under Privilege Name, scroll to Servicesand thenMigrate and choose an option:
    • To create the management role, check the Manage G Suite Migrate deployments box.
    • To create the deployment role, check the Access G Suite Migrate deployments box.
  6. Click Continueand thenCreate role.
  7. Click Assign users
  8. Enter the username of the users to assign to the role.

    You can add and assign 20 users.

  9. Click Assign role.

Step 2: Check Migration service is on

  1. From the Admin console Home page, go to Appsand thenAdditional Google services.
  2. Scroll to Migrate and under Service Status, make sure it is ON for everyone.
  3. (Recommended) Instead of turning the service on for everyone, put all G Suite Migrate admins in an organizational unit and set the Migration service to on for the organizational unit.
