Required User Privileges for Backups and Restores

The Backup docs ( and the Restore docs ( currently don’t mention anything about what access/roles a cockroachDB user would have to be to issue a backup or restore. Should I assume root?

As mention in the Required Privileges section on each of the pages you linked, the caller must be a member of the admin role. By default, that means only the root user.

Ugh, apologies for missing something so obvious.
