Activate/enable/configure RBAC roles in JBoss EAP 6 / 7

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Need to give a user only specific (admin/read-only/etc) access
  • Trying to add a user to a specific management console role:

        <access-control provider="rbac">
                <role name="SuperUser">
                        <user name="$local"/>

    However, when trying to log into the WebConsole I get.

    Access Denied: Insufficient privileges to access this interface.
