Create an administrator

You can create an administrator by adding a role to a user account or user group. The user group can be a directory-linked group or local group. You can add one role to a user and one role to each group they belong to, and 
BlackBerry UEM
 assigns only one of the roles to the user.

BlackBerry UEM
 sends administrators an email with their username and a link to the management console. 
BlackBerry UEM
 also sends administrators a separate email with their password for the management console. If an administrator does not have a account password, 
BlackBerry UEM
 generates a temporary password and sends it to the administrator.
If necessary, add user accounts to a user group that has a role assigned to it. Only Security Administrators can add or remove members of a user group that has a role assigned to it.
