Using another account that has administrator role to an endpoint, is it possible to programmatically through the API delete the endpoint owner or change the owner to be just a manager?

The documentation at https://docs.globus.org/api/transfer/endpoint_roles/#delete_endpoint_role_by_id seems to suggest that it can be done but the app.globus.org doesn’t allow that so I wanted to ask before coding this up…

Hi Mona,

No, it is not possible to modify or delete an endpoint owner's role on an endpoint; even if you are an admin on that endpoint. As admin, you can modify others, but not the endpoint owner.

Best regards,
