What are the Customer Portal Roles and Permissions?

  • Red Hat Customer Portal Roles and Permissions

Organization Administrator: This is the highest permission level with full access to content and features. This is the only role that can manage users and control their access and permissions on an account. An account may have multiple organization administrators.

Manage Support Cases: User can view, create, and update support cases from the Support Cases page.
Download Software and Updates: You can download software and updates from the Red Hat Customer Portal.
View/Renew Subscription Information: You can view account subscription and renewal information on the account.
Manage Your Subscriptions: You have access to subscription, utilization, and system information in Red Hat Subscription Management. There are three different levels for this permission:
- View/Edit User’s Only: You can only view or edit systems that you have registered to the account.
- View All: You can view all systems associated with the account, but you cannot make any changes. This role is typical of someone such as a purchasing agent. This must be set to prevent user from registering systems via subscription-manager.
- View/Edit All: You can view and edit all systems and applications registered to the account.

I created an account for myself on the Customer Portal, but I cannot see my company's existing subscriptions. What's wrong?

  • Accounts that are created on the Customer Portal are independent, stand-alone accounts. Creating an account with your company name does not get you access to your company's existing account.
  • To access your company's existing account, the Organization Administrator of that account needs to create a login ID for you.
  • If you are not sure if your company currently has an account or who the administrator is, contact our Customer Service for assistance.
