Add External Administrators

You can add anyone outside your organization as an external administrator to help maintain your Webex services and users. External administrators can't add additional external administrators to your organization.


Users in free self-sign up organizations can be added as external administrators. But, users that are part of the consumer organization can't be added as an external administrator. Control Hub will indicate an error when you try to verify the emails of users who are in the consumer organization.

1

Sign in to Control Hub at https://admin.webex.com, and open the Users page.

2

Filter the user list by All external administrators to see the list of external admins.

3

Click Add external administrator.

4

Enter the administrator's email address and click Verify email.

5

If this user belongs to a partner organization that manages your subscription, choose Full administrator privileges or Provisioning administrator privileges. If they are from any other organization, choose:

  • Full administrator
  • Read-only administrator
  • Contact Center service administrator (if applicable)
  • Webex site administrator (if applicable). You can then choose to assign users as full, read-only, or user administrators for each Webex site.

Click OK.

Manage External Administrator Privileges

You can choose what information is shared or withheld from external administrators.

As a full administrator of your organization, you can also adjust the administrator privileges for external administrators.

1

Sign in to Control Hub at https://admin.webex.com, and open the Users page.

2

Filter the user list by All external administrators to see the list of external admins.

3

Select the user you want to edit.

4

Choose one of the following:

  • To promote the administrator to a full administrator, under Administrator roles, check Full administrator privilege.

    If the administrator was set up with read-only privileges, you can promote them by going under Administrator roles and choosing Full administrator privilege.

  • To demote the administrator to a provisioning administrator, under Administrator roles, uncheck the Full administrator privilege check box.

    If the administrator was set up with read-only privileges and previously promoted to a full administrator, you can demote them by going under Administrator roles and choosing Read-only administrator privilege.

  • To completely revoke administrator privileges, under Revoke admin privilege, click Revoke admin privilege and then select Revoke privilege.


     

    Revoking administrator privileges deletes all record of the administrator, and they must be added again to reinstate them.
