Modify the Admin Quorum Number

Adjust the number of admins in the admin quorum

The Admin Quorum is the minimum number of organization administrators required to approve sensitive organization changes such as policy definitions, participation in high-risk operations, and more.

For example, your company policy may require an admin quorum of three to accept a new user to Fordefi.
