Service Providers can convert a managed Subscriber account to a Service Provider account. The converted account remains a managed child of the original Service Provider and retains all of its licensed users, operators, and configurations, but now it can now create and manage its own accounts.
Once you convert a Subscriber account to a Service Provider, the account cannot be converted back. Service Provider accounts cannot be converted to Subscriber accounts.
Service Provider accounts cannot be converted to Subscriber accounts.
