ViPR Roles and ACLs

ViPR Roles & ACLsViPR administration tasks are controlled by assigning Active Directory (AD) Users / Groups into Roles. Also, access to the ViPR resources can be controlled by assigning AD Users / Groups to the appropriate Access Control List (ACL).


There are 3 levels of ViPR roles: VDC, Tenant, and Project.
VDC Security Administrator assigns roles and project ACLs to AD Users or Groups.

Tenant Administrator assigns AD Users and Groups to the Tenant Roles and Project ACLs.
