I have a manage service  helping with my network hardware and I am looking to create a new privilege account so for easy removal I can delete the account.

That works.  To be honest, I'd look into TACACs to back your credentials.  Cost you a bit more time and money but it'll save you tons of both going forward.

And no worries.  Glad to help
