Members and Roles

In every account, a member can assume the Account owner, an Administrator, a Developer or a Content Editor role. If you are the Account owner or an Administrator, you can assign a new role to each non-owner member.

Each account has a quota for the available account seats. By default, each account member, including the Account owner, takes up an available account seat. If the Account owner does not hold an active development role, any Administrator can free the seat assigned to the Account owner and assign it to another member. This prevents the Account owner from working with the development resources of Telerik Platform but the owner can still manage the subscription and the account members.

Account Owner

By default, the Account owner has complete access to the account, including license, account, app and member management. If the Account owner does not hold an active development role, any Administrator can free the seat assigned to the Account owner and assign it to another member. This prevents the Account owner from working with the development resources of Telerik Platform but the owner can still manage the subscription and the account members.

Each account can have only one member that holds the Account owner role. Telerik Platform assigns this role to the user who creates the account. In the list of account members, Telerik Platform shows the Account owner as an Administrator.
