    Assigning Permissions

    As a bank administrator, you assign or delete the following user permissions within the context of a sandbox:

    • Topology Management (start or stop topologies)

      You might want to restrict the users who can start and stop a topology.

      Note: There can only be one active topology at a time in a sandbox.

      You might want one individual to control this function.

      In a classroom situation, you might want only the instructor to have start or stop permissions for topologies. Students can then join an active topology.

      Note: All users of a sandbox can join an active topology. Multiple users using an active topology do not consume more capacity than one user since they are all sharing.

    • Library Management (create and delete sandbox libraries)

      Provides the ability to create, update, and delete a library within the sandbox for topology organization.

      Only users with Library Management permissions can create, edit, and delete topologies within a library. This includes editing metadata about the topology (such as the topology description, or whether the topology is downloadable or saveable) or editing the topology itself. You can create a topology through either the Topology Wizard or you can upload a topology if you have the Library Management permission. All users, however, can download topologies (provided the topology is marked downloadable by the creator of the topology).

    • Reservation Management (reserve time and capacity)

      Allows users to reserve a time period to use a specified number of virtual machine units (capacity). A sandbox must have a reservation in order to activate a topology. Since Junosphere is a cloud resource of virtual devices, by reserving your time, you know that those resources are ready and waiting for you. Once your reservation starts, your sandbox capacity is decreased.

    To add, change, or remove a user’s permissions in a sandbox:

    1. Select Administration > Manage Banks / Sandboxes / Libraries.
    2. Select a sandbox from the Sandboxes section by clicking the check box next to the sandbox in which you want to change user permissions.
    3. Click the View/Manage Users in the selected sandbox icon.
    4. Click the Permissions field for the user whose permissions you want to change.
    5. Change permissions as needed in the drop down menu.
    6. Click Save.
