Roles

Concept

In Falcon Deploy, a Role is a named entity that represents a collection of repository privileges. Administrators create roles. The roles are in turn granted to users or teams. Administrators can choose to create separate read-only and read-write roles. A role helps easy management for administrators and avoids clutter in granting privileges to a user or team.

Managing Roles

You can access Role functionality from the left sidebar in the application home page.

List Roles

Clicking on Roles, opens the list of roles in the main content area. Each item has the role name in the header and the list of application privileges in the body. A role can have more than one privilege granted to it.

Create Role

This functionality is available to administrators. Click on the Create Role button found at the top right corner of the main section. On the CREATE ROLE page, fill and submit the form to create a new role.

  • Users ‐ Search for an existing user to grant the role to the user.
  • Grants on Repo ‐ Search for an existing application repository to grant READ ONLY or READ & WRITE privilege on the repository to the role.
  • Team ‐ Search for an existing team to grant the role to the team.

Update Role

Use the Edit button from the role list page to access the UPDATE ROLE page. You can grant or revoke the role from users or teams. You can add or remove privileges granted to this role.

Delete Role

Use the Edit button from the role list page to access the UPDATE ROLE page. Use the Delete button at the bottom of the page to delete the role.
