Is it possible to give multiple licenses to the same user?

The problem I’m having

I cannot assign multiple licenses to the same dbt cloud user

The context of why I’m trying to do this

I have a user that is not developing, but overseeing the project. So I would want to be able to give IT (possibility to manage other users) and read only license (able to see projects and statuses, documentation and so on) to the same user.

What I’ve already tried

Invite the user with another alias email, but the SSO sign in merges the users and assigns the default developer license to the user then

No.

Note: @Jeremy Yeo originally posted this reply in Slack. It might not have transferred perfectly.

A single user can only have a single license type… No exceptions. Use groups and group permission sets to control what a user can or cannot do.

Thank you Jeremy!

So the only way to do that is to create separate users for the IT and read only then.

I guess the group and permissions sets do not allow for circumventing this either? As the user would need to have both licenses to be able to look at explore and manage licenses.

As the docs separate these
