Role-based access control, more succinctly called RBAC, is
used to grant individual users the permission to perform specific actions. Permissions are
grouped into user roles, and each user is assigned at least one user role.
By using permissions, you give the appropriate level of access and
agency to each user. For example, you can grant users:
The permission to grant password reset tokens to other users who
have forgotten their passwords
The permission to edit a local user’s metadata
The permission to deploy Puppet code to specific
The permission to edit class parameters in a node group
You can do access control tasks in the console or using the RBAC API.
