Add a REST access control role

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The security login rest-role create command creates a Representational State Transfer (REST) access-control role. A REST access-control role consists of a role name and an Application Programming Interface (API) to which the role has access. It optionally includes an access level (none , readonly or all ) for the API. After you create a REST access-control role, you can apply it to a management-utility login account by using the security login modify or security login create commands.

Parameters

-vserver <Vserver Name> - Vserver

This optionally specifies the Vserver name associated with the REST role.

-role <text> - Role Name

This specifies the REST role that is to be created.

-api <text> - API Path

This specifies the API to which the REST role has access. This API can be a resource-qualified endpoint. Currently, the only supported resource-qualified endpoints are /api/storage/volumes/{volume.uuid}/snapshots and /api/storage/volumes/*/snapshots . * is a wildcard character denoting all volumes.

-access {none|readonly|all} - Access Level

This optionally specifies an access level for the REST role. Possible access level settings are none , readonly and all . The default setting is all .

Examples

The following command creates a REST access-control role named admin for the vs1.example.com Vserver. This REST role has an access-level of all for the /api/storage/volumes API.

cluster1::> security login rest-role create -role admin -api "/api/storage/volumes" -access all -vserver vs1.example.com
cluster1::>

The following command creates a REST access-control role named vs1_role for the vs1.example.com Vserver. This REST role has an access level of readonly for all snapshots on the volume with UUID f8a541b5-b68c-11ea-9581-005056bbabe6 .

cluster1::> security login rest-role create -role vs1_role -api "/api/storage/volumes/f8a541b5-b68c-11ea-9581-005056bbabe6/snapshots" -access readonly -vserver vs1.example.com
