Role-Based Access Control Overview

 

Contrail Service Orchestration supports the authentication and authorization of users. Both service provider and tenant users access the pages within the unified Administration and Customer Portal based on their role and access permissions.

In addition to predefined roles, CSO enables you to add object-based custom roles. You can create custom roles and assign access privileges (read, create, update, delete, and other actions) to each role.

Table 1 shows predefined service provider, tenant, and OpCo roles and their access privileges.
