Workspace IBM Turbonomic ARM

Implement Custom Roles & RBAC Control via Entity/Tag

This would benefit all users of Turbonomic by allowing administrators to define custom roles, as well as the permissions applied to these roles either globally or by entity/tag and their respective child objects. This would enable application owners or non-workload management teams the ability to work within Turbonomic to modify their own VMs or create templates for workload placement.

    One of the most important feature which would require a more granular role definition for RBAC would be: let "RO" users create groups. Another one would be: let power user have only a certain scope but create groups and policies for their scope.

    More generally speaking that would open the path for being multitenant.

    This will be crucial at large public cloud orgs. Account owners with scoped access will not only want to be able to manually execute actions but may also want to create automation policies for their own accounts.

    Gainwell also requests that this feature get added and or enhanced. They need users to be able to manage all aspects of a particular scope but not others.

    Hello Team ,

    I am expecting at least read-only role in PMC. We need this so that users can see what schedule is attached to which server.
