Privileges and Roles
You can assign privileges, roles, and permissions to users or groups of users to manage the level of access users and groups can have and the scope of the actions that users and groups can perform. EDS uses the same roles, privileges and permissions that are defined in the domain during domain installation.
You can use the following methods to manage user and group access:
- Privileges determine the actions that users can perform in the
Administrator tool. You can assign a set of privileges to a user to restrict access to the
Edge Data Streaming Service. You can also assign privileges to a group to allow all users in the group the same access to the
Edge Data Streaming Service.
- A role is a set of privileges that you can assign to users or groups. You can use roles to manage assignments of privileges to users. You can create a role with limited privileges and assign it to users and groups that have restricted access to the
Edge Data Streaming service. Alternatively, you can create roles with related privileges to assign to users and groups that require the same level of access.
- Permissions define the level of access that users have to an object. A user who has the privilege to perform a certain action might require permission to perform the action on a particular object. For example, to manage the
Edge Data Streaming service, a user must have the privilege to manage services and permission on the specific service.
