Role-based access control

On this page

Roles are used to establish permission levels for user profiles. This type of rights assignment is referred to as role-based access control (RBAC) because the permissions are assigned according to the activities a role needs to perform. Someone who can create profiles, like an administrator role, needs more rights than a user, who only views data and reports.

Basic RBAC

CloudBees SDM has basic role-based access controls (RBAC) that allows for two types of roles:

  • An administrator, or admin, performs maintenance operations for users and can create and connect policies and products to CloudBees SDM.

  • A user can perform all other operations related to the product or products, such as connect tools, create reports, and run queries.

With their elevated privileges, admins tend to be responsible for the configuration and maintenance of CloudBees SDM.
