Controlling storage and system access

Using storage tenant accounts, you can specify who can store and retrieve objects. Using administration user accounts and groups, you control access to the features and functionality of the StorageGRID Webscale system.

Storage tenant accounts

A storage tenant account allows you to specify who can use your StorageGRID Webscale system to store and retrieve objects, and which functionality is available to them. You can create, edit, or delete tenant accounts, and reset root passwords as necessary to manage tenant access to your StorageGRID Webscale system.

By managing administration user accounts and administration groups, you can control access to the StorageGRID Webscale system. Each administration group account is assigned permissions that control access to StorageGRID Webscale features and functionality. You then add administration users to one or more administration group accounts to control individual user access.
