User Roles and Privileges within Google Workspace Admin Console

Within the Admin Console (admin.google.com) there are many roles preconfigured. Some of the most common ones are

  • Super Admins
  • Groups Admin
  • User Management

You can assign any user to have one of these roles which would give them a higher level of responsibility.

You may also create a custom role, picking and choosing which privileges the role should have. Sometimes when you have many roles, it’s hard to see these privileges in an understandable way.

These privileges will have the following details within the Spreadsheets:

  • Privilege ID – A Unique Identifier GAT+ assigns as part of its metadata processing.
  • Service ID – is the id of the service for which this particular permission was created
  • Service Name – Service name which using this privilege
  • Privilege Name – Name of a particular privilege
  • Parent Privilege Name – if a privilege is a descendant of any other privilege
  • isOuScopable – The privilege can be restricted to an organization unit

Those are the most important factors about privileges.

In summary: privileges are lists of permissions and each role can be assigned different privileges.
