Tell me the difference between user roles

There are two types of users that a Manager user can create. Depending on the permissions you assign to the role, you could categorize the users as follows:

All privilege : User will have all the privileges in CloudView except creating and managing other users.

Reader privileges: User with Reader role can only view the data displayed in CloudView module.

How do I manage access for users?

There are two options you could configure access for users

- Direct scope definition for user

- Using groups

How to change default behavior for users with all privileges?

A user with all privileges is able to perform all functions and access all connectors by default. If you want to restrict the access to single connector, simply create connector group and assign it to the user. The user can then access only the single connector associated with the assigned group.

To configure access to multiple connectors, assign a common group to all such connectors and associate it with the required users.

Tell me about GroupBy option

To view the list of connectors grouped together for a single cloud provider, simply click the Group by option. Show me

Alternatively, you could use search token.

group.name: <groupname>

and the search result lists all the connectors for a cloud provider associated with the group.

Tell me Scope and Access Conflicts

Consider a user whose direct scope definition conflicts with the access assigned through groups. In such cases, the scope overrides and the user is able to access the connectors defined directly through the scope of the user.

Let us consider two different examples to understand the conflicts better.

Case 1:  A user is assigned a group named AWS_important that includes access to two AWS connectors. Also, the user has been directly assigned access to five other AWS connectors. In such case, the user is able to access all the seven connectors.

Case 2: A user is assigned a group that includes none of the connectors. In such case, the user cannot access any connector.

However, if the same user is directly assigned connectors through scope definition, the user can access the connectors that are directly assigned.
