RBAC for IBM Runbook Automation (RBA)

Why is it useful? - This would make the RBA more secure, scalable, robust, and enables secure self-service automation capability.

Who would benefit from it? - All customers of IBM Runbook Automation would benefit from this, particularly security conscious customers in regulated industries. This will allow for wider self-service of the RBA platform.

How should it work? - RBA should work with SSO / Active Directory / OAuth, and we should be able to restrict users access depending on their role and group membership access - example below.

AD Group: rAppRBATeam1
