Create a new custom role

POST /api/access-control/roles

Creates a new custom role and maps given permissions to that role. Note that roles with the same prefix as Fixed roles can’t be created.

Required permissions

permissions:type:delegate scope ensures that users can only create custom roles with the same, or a subset of permissions which the user has. For example, if a user does not have required permissions for creating users, they won’t be able to create a custom role which allows to do that. This is done to prevent escalation of privileges.

Update a role

PUT /api/access-control/roles/:uid

Update the role with the given UID, and its permissions. The operation is idempotent and all permissions of the role will be replaced based on the request content. You need to increment the version of the role with each update, otherwise the request will fail.

You can update custom roles and basic roles permissions. However fixed roles cannot be updated.

For example, if a user does not have required permissions for creating users, they won’t be able to update a custom role which allows to do that. This is done to prevent escalation of privileges.

Required permissions

permissions:type:delegate scope ensures that users can only unassign roles which have same, or a subset of permissions which the user has. For example, if a user does not have required permissions for creating users, they won’t be able to unassign a role which will allow to do that. This is done to prevent escalation of privileges.
