Allow for multiple primary admins
There are several functions within the Admin Console that are only accessible to the primary admin. Setting up SSO for example requires the primary admin, and co-admins are unable to integrate with SSO. In many environments there will not be a single administrator with privileged access across multiple systems, which means the primary admin role will need to be assigned and re-assigned multiple times to perform necessary tasks.
To promote a secure environment where tasks may need to be performed by multiple administrators, I would request either 1) admin console allow for multiple users in the primary admin role, or 2) the co-admin role be empowered to perform necessary tasks without becoming the primary admin.
We are working on a project that would allow for different types of admin personas to have various permissions as needed in admin console - working on gathering feedback for this idea
Having distinct admin roles would be useful when trying to parse out and give our security team (which could be an admin profile) access to be able to dig in especially with shield deployed.
It would be great to give master admin to a DRI on security and let them add who they need to the "security team" run reports and view dashboards as needed.

Having only one admin on an enterprise account. So in case the admin is sick or for whatever reason can't access their account, no one else has the same rights and no one can transfer the admin right to someone else. There should be an option for multiple admins.
Agreed. Would be extremely helpful.

The reason behind this request is that my customer shares an account for the primary admin with multiple users and when they create a co-admin, they can't track who actually executes it.
