As an admin, you can add administrative users to a Canvas account in Account Settings. When you assign a user as an admin in the root account, that user has essentially all privileges in any sub-account in Canvas.
Once you add users as admins, if the users already have a profile in Canvas, they will receive an email notifying them that they are now an admin for the account. If the users do not already have a profile, they will receive an email with a link to create a profile and access the account.
If you want to give a Canvas user rights to manage a catalog but not allow full admin access, you can add a user as a subcatalog admin directly in your Catalog account instead.
- When adding an administrative user, you must assign the user to an account role. Before adding a user, ensure that you have created the necessary account-level role.
- Your administrative user list includes the Catalog API, which is currently included in all Catalog accounts.
