Just one superuser?

The rule is now that a user can only create users with less authority,
right? So even a superuser cannot create additional superusers - they
would have to be created directly in the db?

The rule is correct but there is one exception - users with the ALL
authority / admins can create other admins.

Ok, I just saw that I couldn't create further admin users in a fresh
instance that uses dhis2demo.backup.

The issue is that even though I as superuser can modify all user
roles, not all of them show up when I make a new user. However, it is
a bit consistent, since I can for example add ALL to the guest role.
But the superuser role itself is not available.

Hi this rule is about users, not user roles. We normally don't allow
user in the lower part of the hierarchy to create user roles.

Also we have removed the ALL authority from the admin user in demo
database, because people were doing heavy data mart exports on the
demo server which tended to take it down.
