    It means the user is an Administrator, as Rob says in his answer. This has changed in 8.5!

    As of 8.5 "Administration" is a group privilege. You make users admins by adding them to a group with the admin privilege - there's also a lot more privileges like creating users, creating groups, "Local Admin" (administrator within a publication only), etc - Check Alvin's posts on community: community.sdl.com/solutions/content-management/tridion/b/…

1 Answer 1


That indicates the user is a System Administrator I believe.

Edit: As noted by Nuno in the comments this has changed in SDL Web 8.5 with the introduction of the Privileges model.

See related question here: Create Admin User in SDL Web 8.5 via core service

That is Core Service but you will need to do something similar in your GUI extension.
