How do I enable Canvas permissions for admins to manage a Catalog account?

Canvas admins are not automatically given access to the admin features in Canvas Catalog. Catalog admins can manage all course and program listings in Catalog, as well as user registration, reports, and promotions.

If a Canvas admin needs to be an admin in Canvas Catalog, you will need to enable the catalog permission for the admin's role at the account level. For more information about permissions, please see the Canvas Admin Guide.

Note: The catalog permission only appears in Permissions for institutions that have a Canvas Catalog account and does not apply to subaccount roles.
