You can use the Admin App, CLI commands, or REST API methods to change the permissions that a role contains.

About permissions

Each permission in a role grants a user the ability to perform an action in some area of the system. For example, the permission admin:services:read grants the ability to view services through the Admin App.

Admin App instructions

  1. Select Dashboard > Configuration.
  2. Click Security.
  3. Select the Roles tab.
  4. Select the role you want to edit.
  5. Use the Individual and Wildcard tabs to edit the permissions for the role.
    On the Individual tab, you can enable individual permissions or categories of permissions:
    • Select a category of permissions and select one or more individual permissions within the category.

      For example, with the permissions selected in this image, a user can read, create, and update certificates, but cannot delete them.

    • On the Wildcard tab, you can enable permissions for multiple categories at the same time. To do this:
      1. Click Add Permission.
      2. Use the menus to select a category of permissions.
      3. Leave the last menu set to the wildcard character (*).
  6. Click Create.
  7. Click Update.
