    2. Navigate to SettingsUSERS AND ROLESUsers and select a SAML user.

    3. Click Roles.

    4. Select Set as Default Admin.

    5. Click Save.

    6. Log out.

  2. Log in as SAML user you set as default administrator in step 1 and do the following:

    1. Navigate to SettingsUSERS AND ROLESUsers and select the admin user.

    2. Click Roles.

    3. Uncheck the Set as Default Admin and click Save.

    4. Select admin again and click Disable.
