6.5. Hosts Permissions

A host administrator has system administrator permissions for a specific host only. This role is useful when there are multiple hosts, each of which require their own system administrators. A host administrator has permissions for the assigned host only, not for all hosts in the cluster.

You can only assign roles and permissions to existing users.
