Then simply enter the email addresses of any Company Administrator in the company that you’d like to share the library with. Keep in mind that all Company Admins of the target company will be notified to accept the library share given. Once accepted, all Company Administrators in that company will have full rights to the library in question, as well as the ability to manage their own library admins and granting users access for that library.

Once you share your library, take note that they will become a Library Admin of the shared library. If you’d like to limit Library Admin rights of a Shared Library, you can Protect the Library. Protecting a Library will restrict Library Admin rights of the Library and only Company Admins of the Company sharing the Library will be able to add or update content. To protect a library, you’ll want to right-click to edit the Library, within the Library management tab, within the Unifi App, in the upper right corner, you select Protect this Library.
