[RFE] Ability to apply roles to host groups
Last modified: 2017-11-03 09:53:11 EDT
Description of problem:
From the customer:
This is the breakdown of the requirements coming from a user.
• API that enables us to:
o Create collections of hosts (hostgroups)
o Add hosts to one or more groups
o Create collections of users (usergroups)
o Add users to one or more groups
o Create "profiles" (Containers that hold sets of permissions)
o Add permission statements to the containers
o Link between profiles and groups so we can grant/deny permissions
• GUI in Sat6 to do all of the above
The request is to be able to apply role permissions to host groups based on users pulled from our CMDB through an API call to see what SME’s are part of the computer system environment.
Today Satellite can only apply roles based on Organization and Location.
Thanks for the report. Profiles exist today and are called Roles. Satellite provides API for everything from the list except for tailoring the role for a given host group / host collection. That is already tracked under BZ 1453061. I'm closing this as a duplicate of it, please reopen or let me know if I misunderstood the request.
