Satellite - User role that allows management of hosts in a host collection only

Latest response

Just starting looking into how to create a user role that allows management of hosts in a specific host collection. Any pointers to how this is done?


Hi Ethan, The role will need to have filters setup to limit the permissions to the specific host collection.

From the webadmin interface, select the role you created and then select the filters tab. There should be an option for New filter

Select the host resource type in the drop down and then add the specific permissions you want for this role.

Uncheck "unlimited" and in the search enter host_collection = [name] or host_collection_id = [id]. This will limit the host permissions of this role to that specific collection.

Granular Permission Filtering

Thanks! I'll give that a try and see what I come up with. Regards - Ethan
