7.2.2 Administrator role
For creation or update of certain entities during the import, the Administrator role is required. This is for registering namespaces, creating branches, languages and collections, and creating or updating schema types.
If the required entities already exist, you can use a non-Administrator role as well. You might want to set the schemaCreateOnly option (see below) to true, to avoid that the import fails for non-Administrator roles if there is some slight difference between a schema type in the import and the one in the repository.
