You can also view whether an enterprise owner has a specific role in the organization. Enterprise owners can also be an organization member, any other organization role, or be un-affiliated with the organization.

Note: If you're an organization owner, you can also invite an enterprise owner to have a role in the organization. If an enterprise owner accepts the invitation, a seat or license in the organization is used from the available licenses for your enterprise. For more information about how licensing works, see "Roles in an enterprise."
