For certain tasks, such as creating contexts or adjusting your plan settings, we require that the user have "Admin" permissions for the organization being modified.
We check if you are an admin in two ways:
- Are you the owner of the organization? (Always true for personal accounts)
- Do you have the "Admin" scope on any repository in the organization?
If a user has "Admin" scope on any repo within the organization, the user will be able to perform any administrative functions on CircleCI.
