Hub Admin Privileges#

Note

Curious about what privileges admins have in Datahub? If yes, read below!

What does admin access in the hub mean?

Admin feature provides the necessary access required to support students using your hub. If you are an admin user, you have access to the following features,

  1. You can start and stop the students’ server in your dedicated hub

  2. You can access the student server to debug issues in their instance

Warning

Admin privileges are hub-wide. If you’re a teaching team member who happens to be also a student in another course on the same hub, then there can be a conflict of interest.
