What is the maximum number of system administrator can be created in developer sandbox?

We already have 22 System administrator (profile) created in the sandbox.

When I was trying to create a new System administrator, I am not getting the option from Profile drop down as System administrator (please check attached screen shot).

  • Is this a Developer Edition Org or an actual Developer Sandbox from a Production Org? Your question is unclear. – crmprogdev Jan 14 '17 at 16:24

    You have clearly run out of SF licences as it is not appearing in the dropdown. – Dave Humm Jan 14 '17 at 16:36
  • Hi @crmprogdev Yes, its an actual Developer Sandbox from a Production Org. – Kamruzzaman Jan 16 '17 at 14:48

You can set everyone as administrator, if you want to, and you can create as many active users as you have licenses (Setup > Company Profile > Company Information). Most likely, you don't have any free licenses at the moment.

  • In fact. If you look at the top of his screenshot, that is exactly the case. – Sebastian Kessel Jan 14 '17 at 18:23
  • Hi @sfdcfox Nice to see your comment. Yes you are right. Remaining license for Salesforce=0. But license is available for others (Salesforce Platform, Chatter Free, Chatter External). Is it possible to create System Admin using these users? – Kamruzzaman Jan 16 '17 at 11:00
  • @Robi No, only Salesforce users can be a System Administrator. You'll have to deactivate another user before you can set up a new System Administrator. – sfdcfox Jan 16 '17 at 15:56
