Manage Workspace 365 Admin role from AD or the Workspace

By default, the "Manage Workspace 365 Admin role from" option is set to "Azure AD". Here you can choose between Azure AD and the Workspace. When this is set to Azure AD, users with a IsAdmin flag in Azure will be set in the Workspace as an admin. 
When this function is set to Workspace 365, you can determine from Workspace which users need to have the admin role.
