Why Normal Users Can Not Create Automation Controller Objects?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform
  • RBAC


  • In Ansible Automation Controller, normal users can not create Controller objects like Templates /Credentials/Projects/Inventories/Inventory Scripts.


  • Normal Users have read and write access limited to the objects such as inventory, projects, and job templates for which that user has been granted the appropriate roles and privileges.

  • By default, Normal users cannot create Controller objects except Job templates and credentials. For a Normal user to create objects, you need to grant the admin role to the user for creating objects at the Tower Organization level.

  • These roles can be limited to a certain objects like project admin, notification admin etc. if you grant these roles to the user, the user will be able to manage these objects for the whole Organization.

  • For more details about these roles and assigning them to user's, you can refer to the Organization documentation of Tower.
