Managing Users

Administrator users manage user accounts on the Admin Console page.


An administrator can:

  • Add and remove users.
  • Grant and revoke permission to create clusters subject to cluster access control configuration.
  • Grant and revoke administrator rights by selecting the Admin checkbox.

In this workspace, William is an administrator and Greg can create clusters.


Users with Contributor or Owner role on the workspace resource can sign in as administrators via the Azure Portal. For more information, see Assign initial account admins.
