There are four possible roles that a person can have in Watson Workspace.
Marketplace administrators can configure your Watson Workspace subscription and add or remove users.
Team administrators can access the Watson Workspace admin portal to manage team authentication, unassigned spaces, space membership and permissions, template properties, third party apps and more.
Note: A marketplace administrator may also be a team administrator and vice versa but only the original marketplace administrator who sets up the subscription in IBM Marketplace is automatically designated a team administrator in Watson Workspace admin portal. All other marketplace and team administrators need to be individually assigned those roles in either the IBM Marketplace or Watson Workspace admin portal respectively.
Space owner - A space owner is the person that creates a space. By default, a space owner and member have the same permissions, other than a space owner is the only person that can delete a space. However, in the Essentials Edition and Plus Edition, a space owner has additional permissions such as adding and removing member, adding and removing apps, changing space details, that they can designate as owner-only.
Member - Everyone else is a member. A member may be a guest in a space, meaning they do not belong to the same team as the owner. A guest is designated with (guest) after their name. A member has access to all the core functionality of Watson Workspace.
Note: A guest can not create spaces in another team; however they can create spaces as a preview user or in their own Essentials or Plus team.
