I cannot change super admin

I am a super admin and I don’t know how to transfer super admin to another person.

  • There is no button to make me super admin when I edit another admin.
  • When I try to invite someone as super admin, I get error 429 and I don’t know what it means.
  • When I try to leave, I can’t do it because I am super admin.

Does anyone know how to pass super admin to someone else?
This is the only service in my life that gave me 429 even though it is the 1st operation…

Hi there,

A 429 is a HTTP response code that indicates rate-limiting has been triggered. If you are seeing this when visiting your website that you own, you should be able to look at your rate-limiting settings on our dashboard and look at disabling the rule in order to get access again or alternatively create a rule to bypass rate-limiting for the source/client IP you are browsing from.

Here are some guides to help you.

Where you can find rate-limiting documentation: Rate limiting rules · Cloudflare Web Application Firewall (WAF) docs
How to create a skip rule to bypass rate-limiting for your IP - Configure a custom rule with the Skip action · Cloudflare Web Application Firewall (WAF) docs

It is also possible this 429 is not being served by Cloudflare, and could be coming from your origin web server if you have some sort of rate-limiting security software configured there, depending on what the error page looks like (Cloudflare branded, would indicate its from Cloudflare and another other branding likely your origin).

You may just invite a new user and set them with Super Administrator permission.
