Types of account in CubeBackup
For small organizations, one CubeBackup administrator is usually enough. However, for large organizations, or for Google Workspace partners who manage backups for multiple clients, it may be helpful to enable multiple administrator accounts. Additionally, you may wish to allow individual users to view their own backups and restore files or messages themselves.

System Admin: Full control of CubeBackup.

- Small organizations who have only one Google Workspace domain: 1 or 2 system administrators are enough. You can also enable Google OAuth login for all users in your domain according to the data policy in your organization.
- Large organizations: 1 or 2 system administrator accounts, plus a few domain operators. We recommend that Google OAuth login be turned on for all users in your organization.
- Google Workspace partners: 1 or 2 system administrator accounts. You can assign each Google Workspace domain a domain administrator so that your customers can manage their own backup data. You can also discuss with your clients whether to enable Google OAuth login.
- Only system administrators can add more administrators/operators to CubeBackup.
