Role-based Access Control
StackState Self-hosted v5.0.x
This page describes StackState version 5.0.
Role Based Access Control (RBAC) is a critical function for any Managed Service Provider (MSP) organization, but its use is not limited to MSPs. Access Management helps you manage who has access to the specific topology elements, UI elements, and which APIs they can call.
RBAC is an authorization system that provides fine-grained access management of StackState resources, that provides a clean and easy way to audit user privileges and to fix identified issues with access rights.
Here are some examples of what you can do with RBAC:
- Allow one user to have access to the Applications layer, and another one to have access to the Databases layer.
- Allow a group of users to access Analytics in StackState.
- Create a group for users with access to specific elements of the topology.
A role in StackState is a combination of a configured subject and a set of permissions. Process of setting up a role in StackState is described in How to set up roles.
