Hello Guys,

I discovered a small issue (not major, but....); the admin account is the only that can be edited and removed after reating teacher accounts with admin rights.

The strange thing is that creating 2 new admin accounts (with different names than admin obviously), the new platform admin can't be removed or edited, the main admin account can.

For my understanding, the main admin account should be the only one (as Anonymous) that should remain non deletable, the other being indeed Trainers with admin right.

Thanks in advnace for your help.

You may hear soon again from me :)

I can reproduce the issue, this is a known issue because all admins have the same rights, so the second admin can delete the first one, and the third admin can delete the second, etc.

There should be a new role called "super admin" so this super admin can only delete other admins.
This also could be useful when dealing with multiple urls.

Right now when using 2 domains we have a "global admin", this global admin is just and admin that belongs to all domains.

I think we could implement this as a new feature for chamilo 1.10? Waiting feedback ...

You can close this case (with a great pleasure :) )
The actual behavior is just PERFECT!!!
When you are logged in with an admin account, any other can be edited or deleted... But obviously not the one you are using.

Again, this is just PERFECT ... Thanks for your time! :)

WHen you access as admin you can delete admin users which are not current user.
