How do I give a user admin rights when I am using delegated authentication and cannot log into the admin console?
- I am trying to log into the admin console, but cannot log in with the provided
onprem-admin-donotdeleteuser as I am using delegated authentication.
- Element Server Suite
If you wish to give @bob:server.name admin access, then as a user with kubernetes access to your environment, run:
kubectl exec -n element-onprem -it pods/synapse-postgres-0 -- /usr/bin/psql -d synapse -U synapse_user -c "update users set admin = 1 where name = '@bob:server.name';"
You will want to replace
@bob:server.name with the actual user that you wish to give admin to.
The issue is that the delegated authentication does not have an
onprem-admin-donotdelete user and so there is no way to log in with the provided admin account.
