Admin API

  • Last updated on

You can manage your admins via the Admin API. 

Command Help

All commands provide a help text with the available sub-commands and flags. For example, running fyde-cli admins will let you know about the getlistaddedit and delete sub-commands, and fyde-cli admins edit --help will list all available flags for the edit admins command, including pagination, sorting, and filtering flags.


The list command lists all the account administrators:

fyde-cli admins list

The help flag tells you the things you can change:

fyde-cli admins edit --help

The edit command allows you to edit the information:

fyde-cli admins edit 755 —name ‘FirstName LastName’

The create command lets you create new admins:

fyde-cli admins create --name 'Oliver Brown' --email '' --password 'ThisIsATest123' --roles admin

You can also edit the admin roles. It is possible to assign multiple roles to the admin. Check below for the current admin roles.

  • owner – It has access to all the APIs, including the Administrator API.
  • owner_ro  It has access to all the APIs, including the Administrator API, but only for listing and searching. Modification, creation, or deletion is not permitted.
  • admin – It has access to all APIs except the Administrator API. It cannot list, add, modify, or delete admins.
  • admin_ro – It has the same logic as with the owner_ro. It is a read-only admin. Modifications are not permitted.
  • enrollment  It has access to listing and searching users, and to manipulate everything related to device enrollments (create a new enrollment link, delete it, add more allowed devices to an existing enrollment link, and send enrollment emails).
  • evaluate_resource – It is useful for service accounts. It only allows access to the evaluate_resource API (used for troubleshooting).
  • read_events – It only has access to the records objects (the Activity menu on the web console). It is useful for service accounts configured to export records through our CLI to later import them into a SIEM solution.
