I went into Admin->System->Permission->Roles & edit the role for Admin

Now, i am unable to re-set back it to original "ALL" permissions.

How can i revert back to original settings ?

Whatever you do, do not delete the Magento stock Admin User account, much irritation ensues. As you're finding, messing with its Role ACL also has future repercussions.

The usual method is to use a script to create a new admin account with full access so you can repair the old account and reset the ACL to All.

I don't plan on plagiarizing work done by Inchoo, so this will be a linked answer: Locked out from Magento Admin

Use mysqldump to back up your database before doing anything further.

Yes I also done this When I make First time in Module acl.xml and I was check it whether it works or not.

I try to create a Admin user one, two , three.... and no Admin user access, because I remove All Administrators's Role.

then I done Below thing to get All Admin user's Role ( Reset Role ).

Note:- use mysqldump to back up your databases before doing anything further

Step-1: Back up below Tables

    Table 1 :-  admin_user
    Table 2 :-  authorization_role
    Table 3 :-  authorization_rule

Step-2: truncate Above three Table using truncate command ( not using DELETE command )

truncate table [ Table Name ];

Step-3: insert new User in with All Roles , Run below three Command

  1. This insert data into admin_user table

         INSERT INTO `admin_user` (`user_id`, `firstname`, `lastname`, `email`, `username`, `password`, `created`, `modified`, `logdate`, `lognum`, `reload_acl_flag`, `is_active`, `extra`, `rp_token`, `rp_token_created_at`, `interface_locale`, `failures_num`, `first_failure`, `lock_expires`, `refresh_token`) VALUES (1, 'admin', 'admin', '[email protected]', 'admin', '45cf9053530ceb9fde49794d9e6d81fd2ce481b0136067986a5c9bc139a7d08f:FivE4hOQqPtW1xdE:2', '2019-07-23 10:48:31', '2019-09-09 13:20:42', '2019-09-09 13:20:42', 46, 0, 1, '{\"configState\":{\"contact_contact\":\"1\",\"web_default_layouts\":\"0\",\"web_default\":\"1\",\"web_secure\":\"1\",\"web_seo\":\"1\",\"web_unsecure\":\"1\",\"wishlist_wishlist_link\":\"1\",\"wishlist_email\":\"1\",\"wishlist_general\":\"1\",\"admin_emails\":\"0\",\"admin_startup\":\"0\",\"dev_front_end_development_workflow\":\"1\",\"dev_restrict\":\"0\",\"dev_debug\":\"1\",\"dev_template\":\"0\",\"sw_megamenu_general\":\"1\",\"newsletter_general\":\"1\",\"newsletter_subscription\":\"1\",\"dev_js\":\"0\",\"admin_security\":\"0\",\"admin_url\":\"0\",\"admin_dashboard\":\"0\",\"admin_captcha\":\"0\",\"sw_megamenu_custom_links\":\"1\",\"sw_megamenu_cat_labels\":\"1\",\"cms_wysiwyg\":\"1\",\"catalog_frontend\":\"1\",\"catalog_fields_masks\":\"0\",\"catalog_review\":\"1\",\"catalog_productalert\":\"1\",\"catalog_productalert_cron\":\"1\",\"catalog_placeholder\":\"1\",\"catalog_recently_products\":\"1\",\"catalog_product_video\":\"0\",\"catalog_price\":\"0\",\"catalog_layered_navigation\":\"1\",\"catalog_search\":\"0\",\"catalog_seo\":\"0\",\"catalog_navigation\":\"1\",\"catalog_downloadable\":\"1\",\"catalog_custom_options\":\"0\",\"layered_navigation_module\":\"1\",\"layered_navigation_general\":\"1\",\"carriers_flatrate\":\"1\",\"carriers_freeshipping\":\"1\",\"carriers_tablerate\":\"1\",\"carriers_temando\":\"1\",\"carriers_ups\":\"1\",\"carriers_usps\":\"1\",\"carriers_fedex\":\"1\",\"carriers_dhl\":\"1\",\"shipping_origin\":\"1\",\"shipping_shipping_policy\":\"1\",\"tax_vertex_settings\":\"1\",\"tax_classes\":\"1\",\"tax_calculation\":\"1\",\"tax_defaults\":\"1\",\"tax_display\":\"1\",\"tax_cart_display\":\"1\",\"tax_sales_display\":\"1\",\"tax_weee\":\"1\",\"tax_vertex_seller_info\":\"0\",\"tax_vertex_delivery_terms\":\"0\",\"tax_avaiable_shipping_product_codes\":\"0\",\"tax_vertex_logging\":\"0\",\"dev_grid\":\"0\",\"dev_static\":\"0\",\"dev_image\":\"0\",\"dev_css\":\"0\",\"dev_translate_inline\":\"0\",\"general_store_information\":\"1\",\"general_single_store_mode\":\"1\",\"general_locale\":\"1\",\"general_region\":\"1\",\"general_country\":\"1\",\"productinquiry_general_option\":\"1\",\"productinquiry_google_captcha\":\"1\",\"productinquiry_email_setting\":\"1\",\"trans_email_ident_general\":\"1\",\"product_attachment_general\":\"1\",\"product_attachment_display_configuration\":\"1\"}}', NULL, NULL, 'en_US', 0, NULL, NULL, NULL);
  2. This insert Data into authorization_role table

  3. This insert Data into authorization_rule

    INSERT INTO authorization_rule (rule_id, role_id, resource_id, privileges, permission) VALUES (1, 1, 'Magento_Backend::all', NULL, 'allow');

    php bin/magento s:s:d -f ;
    php bin/magento c:f ;
    php bin/magento c:c ;
