Creating and Managing Roles

A role is a personality that a user assumes to perform a specific set of operations. A role includes a set of rights and privileges. A user assumes that role inherits those rights and privileges. In the Liberty version, a user is assigned the role of Admin or Member; roles are not available in previous versions of Metacloud.

Note
The Metacloud Identity service defines a user’s role on a project, and each service then defines what permissions each role has. This is referred to as the service’s policy.
