Roles FAQ of vCAC –For Myself
Before I start on main topic of I would like to highlight vCAC as product has three main components which needs to be explore, blogged or documented very well
Reason we don’t see much on this yet, as it is evolving field. Not one person knows or have these skill sets. These components makes perfect orchestration layer but expects broad skill sets which are difficult to find. I’m mostly blogging on vCAC core stuff. But people expect a lot from vCAC Extensibility. It is skill which needs attention, understanding and has huge scope.
Below are frequently asked questions about various roles available in vCAC or I asked myself. This question helps me define Role Based Access control model for vCAC. Hope it also helps you too.
Who has rights to create blueprint?
It is Tenant Administrator role and Business group manager has rights to create blueprint
Who has rights to create reservations?
Fabric Administrator has rights to create reservation. Reservation can be shared between the tenant BUT only if the fabric is shared.
Below is the example of shared fabric. I created a single fabric (i.e. mapped three different cluster to it) which will allow fabric administrator to choose from the cluster (i.e. compute resources) and assign them to tenants.
In such model, reservations are visible across the tenants. It means Fabric administrator plays shared role in managing fabric.
