Where is the Manager role?
Updated over a week ago

When you register a name on app.ens.domains it is automatically wrapped in the name wrapper contract.

  • "Unwrapped" names have both Manager and Owner Roles.

  • "Wrapped" names have only the Owner role.

    • And the Owner has all the permissions to update name records.

Subnames - both wrapped and unwrapped - have a Manager role only

From the Wrapped States Article

Unwrapped Names

The name exists and has not expired (in the case of .eth second-level names). The Name Wrapper contract does not have ownership over the name. You own the name in the registry and/or .eth registrar.


The Name Wrapper contract has ownership of the name (in the registry/registrar). You are issued an ERC-1155 NFT in return, which proves that you are the actual owner.

You can unwrap the name at any time, which burns the ERC-1155 NFT, and returns ownership in the registry/registrar back to you.
