Add permissions to a user role

To go through the Property Manager setup and configure API features, you first need to ensure that your Control Center user has appropriate permissions assigned in the Identity and Access Management application.

Note: If you’re an Admin user, you may skip this task because you should already have all of the required permissions.

If a user that you want to grant access to does not exist in Control Center, you should first create a user in Identity and Access Management. For details on creating users, modifying roles, and other aspects of the Identity and Access Management application, see the Identity and Access Management Online Help in Control Center.

How to

  1. Go to > ACCOUNT ADMIN > Identity & access.
  2. On the Identity and Access Management page, select the Roles tab.
  3. From the list of available roles, choose the one you want to add permissions to, and from its corresponding Action menu, select Clone role.
    Normally, each role that you may clone already contains some predefined permissions. The Description column explains a role’s level of access and it should help you decide which role to associate with a particular user.
  4. In the Clone a role window, do these steps:
    1. In the Name field, enter a name for the new role.
    2. In the Description field, enter a description of the new role.
    3. From the Permissions list, select All Permissions.
    4. In the section on the right, select the permissions that you want to assign. Click Save.
      The following permissions allow access to API Gateway and related features. See the description of each permission to learn about the access level it provides.

  7. In the Edit <username> window, select the Assign roles tab.
  8. In the Assign roles tab, click the pencil icon () next to the appropriate name.
  9. From the list of roles, select the role you assigned the permissions to. Click Save to assign the role with the specified permissions to the selected user.
