Is the default Admin role inherently different than other roles? Does Drupal extend privileges to the Admin role that are not configurable/available to other roles?
To be clear, I am not referring to
user/1 on the site, but rather the official Administrator role as has been assigned here:
Here's why I'm asking:
I've been having trouble with a Data Export View where a non-Admin user runs the export and the resulting output is incomplete. When running the export logged in as an Admin, the resulting output is complete.
I spent some time futzing with the permissions of the non-Admin role with no good results. So, as an experiment, I made a new role and enabled every permission… which, presumable would make this role equivalent to the Admin role. I logged in as a user with that new role, ran the data export, and still got the same incomplete dataset. What gives?
As a bonus question: any idea why is my Data Export view outputting incomplete data for the non-Admin roles?
