Support Portal Permissions Update

The Support portal can only be accessed by the Appspace Cloud Services Account Owner, or by users that have been granted Support portal access permissions. However, these users are only limited to being able to create, view, and manage cases that they have created themselves.

With the latest update, the Support portal now introduces a new Support Admin permissions option, allowing users to create, view, and manage cases that have been raised by other users as well, similar to that of the Appspace Cloud Services Account Owner.
