Nope. The Owner is the creator of the team.
The owner only has the role admin. Try using a global function such as
function userMyRole(role : text) do
userHasRole(role) or userHasRole("admin")
This mimics the userHasRole function but giving the owner all the roles.
Nice workaround, John. But I cant use that in the table allow to read/ allow to write / create new records / delete records drop downs.
