How do I enable Canvas permissions for admins to manage a Catalog account?

In Canvas Catalog, admins can manage all course and program listing, as well as user registration, reports, and promotions. However, Canvas admins are not automatically given access to the admin features in Canvas Catalog.

As the Catalog account admin, you may need to add another Canvas admin as a Catalog admin. You will need to enable the catalog permission for the admin's role at the account level. For more information about permissions, please see the Canvas Admin Guide.

Note: The Catalog permission only appears in the Permissions list if your institution has a Canvas Catalog account, and it does not apply to subaccount roles.
