Role

Description

New

Primary Admin

By default, the contract manager (or owner), is also assigned as the primary admin.

Primary admin rights:

  • Manage users and their access to products.
  • Assign secondary and SSO admins and change the primary admin.
  • Can only manage billing and renewal if they are also the contract manager.
  • Manage single sign-on (SSO).

Additional information:

  • The primary admin role can be reassigned. For details, see Primary Admins.
    Note: Changing the primary admin does not change the contract manager (and vice versa).
  • There can only be one primary admin per team.

Secondary Admin

  • Secondary admins assist with user management.

Secondary admin rights:

  • Manage users and their access to products.
  • Assign additional secondary admins and change the primary admin.
  • Can only manage billing and renewal if they are also the contract manager.

Additional information:

  • You can have more than one secondary admin. For details, see Secondary Admins.
  • Secondary admins are not assigned by contract and, therefore, have visibility into all users and products in the account.
  • The contract manager is initially assigned as a secondary admin.
  • There can only be multiple secondary admins per team.

SSO Admin

SSO admins assist with managing and configuring SSO.

SSO admin rights:

  • SSO admins have the same rights as secondary admins, but can also manage and configure single sign-on.
  • SSO admins are not able to see contract details in Autodesk Account.

Additional information:

  • You can have more than one SSO admin.
  • You can change the SSO admin in Autodesk Account. For more information, see SSO Admins.

 

User

  • Can access assigned products and cloud services.

 

Guest User

  • Users added to your team from a connected cloud collaboration product (for example, Autodesk BIM Collaborate, Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro, or Autodesk Build) are automatically added as guests. You can assign them access to needed products and services but filter them out of team lists.
  • Any user can be designated a guest. Typically, they are non-employees, such as contractors or vendors associated with a project. Primary and secondary admins cannot be guests.
