The Master Administration console allows one to generate a list of Admins in say "Global Administrator"  role or say "Organization Administrator" role etc (to name a few roles). Furthermore, the Admin list to extract can be refined on the basis of Admin's "User Status". There are three  possible "User Status" for an Admin user.
1. Active
2. Inactive
3. Initial

This not a recommended approach as Broadcom reserved all rights to change its DB tables and the related DB schemas without any notification. Hence the SQL approach is not a reliable means to extract this information.

SQL Query shared folowed by a screenshot of the output below.
select * from ARADMINUSER;
