ACLs are permissions that apply to pre-existing objects. Only a super admin (XO administrator) can create objects.
ACLs are the permissions for your users or groups. The ACLs view can be accessed in the "Settings" panel.
- Select the user or group you want to apply permissions on
- Select the object on which the permission will apply
- Choose the role for this ACL
- Click on "Create"
You can click to add multiple objects at the same time!
Your ACL is now available in the right list:
You can edit/remove existing ACLs here.
There are 3 different roles for your users:
An object admin can do everything on it, even destroy it. E.g with its admin VM:
- remove it
- migrate it (to a host with admin permission on it)
- modify the VM resources, name and description
- clone it
- copy it
- convert it into a template
- snapshot it (even revert from a snapshot)
- export it
- attach/add visible disks
- same for network cards
An operator can make everyday operations on assigned objects. E.g on a VM:
- eject a CD
- insert a CD (if he can view the ISO storage repository)
- start, restart, shutdown, suspend/resume it
All other operations are forbidden.
A viewer can only see the VM state and its metrics. That's all!
Objects have a hierarchy: a Pool contains all its hosts, containing itself all its VMs.
If you give a view permission to a user (or a group) on a pool, he will automatically see all the objects inside this pool (SRs, hosts, VMs).
# Allow a user to install an OS
If the OS install needs an ISO, you need to give this user 2 permissions:
- Operate on the VM (e.g to start it)
- View on the ISO Storage containing the needed ISO.
