The RBAC permissions matrix displays the type of product roles that are available within each cloud product.

  • Admin provides full access to create, read, update, and delete.
  • Creator provides limited access to create, read, and update.
  • Observer provides read-only access.

Note: Admin and Observer are global roles, which apply across all RBAC-enabled cloud products.

RackConnect is not RBAC-enabled.
