19.6. User Authorization
19.6.1. User Authorization Model
Red Hat Virtualization applies authorization controls based on the combination of the three components:
- The user performing the action
- The type of action being performed
- The object on which the action is being performed
19.6.2. User Actions
For an action to be successfully performed, the user must have the appropriate permission for the object being acted upon. Each type of action has a corresponding permission.
Some actions are performed on more than one object. For example, copying a template to another storage domain will impact both the template and the destination storage domain. The user performing an action must have appropriate permissions for all objects the action impacts.
