Administrator authentication and RBAC overview with the CLI

Contributors

This content describes how to enable login accounts for cluster administrators and storage virtual machine (SVM) administrators, and how to use role-based access control (RBAC) to define the capabilities of administrators.

You should use this content if you want to enable login accounts and RBAC in the following way:

  • You want to use the ONTAP command-line interface (CLI), not ONTAP System Manager or an automated scripting tool.

  • You want to use best practices, not explore every available option.

  • You do not want to read a lot of conceptual background.

  • You are not using SNMP to collect information about the cluster.

If this content is not suitable for your situation, you should see the following documentation instead:
