Why Do We Need an Administrator Role?
Always share administrator-level access as we might need to update any files of our plugin, enable/disable plugins/themes, and other advanced technical stuff.
Permission to enable/disable any plugin or theme to troubleshoot if required. We might need to install a few safe and popular plugins(Which will be installed directly from WordPress.org) such as file manager, debug manager to get error log or troubleshoot in depth.
