Manage Enterprise Google Play accounts with multiple users

When an organization enrolls in the Android Enterprise using the managed domain, an organizational Managed Google Play account will be created. The email address used for enrolling the organization becomes the administrator user for the enterprise Google Play account.

The Hexnode administrators have the authority to control the app management tasks from the MDM console. The enterprise Managed Google Play administrator is also responsible for managing these apps from the Managed Google Play console. This administrator can add new users to the managed Google Play to assist him/her in performing the managerial actions. These new users can be assigned the roles “Admin” or “Owner”.

Admins can manage free or paid apps, as well as approve apps. The owners have the ultimate privilege in the account; they can perform the admin duties in addition to adding or removing account admins/owners and deleting the enterprise.
