  • 1.  Creating User as a Admin with all the privileges via REST API

    Posted 10-17-2016 12:08:00 PM

    I am able to create a Delphix User as "Owner" role via REST API. I need to know how to set the full privileges via REST API. Please find the below screen shot for the user  as "Owner" created via REST API shows blank for privileges.

    Hey Ramesh. Delphix is an RBAC authorization system. So, you need to add a user to a role (group) to give them privileges.  Look here to learn about authorizations:

    http://<DEIP>/api/#authorization

    We are already doing the Authorization. The above screen shot is taken even after running the below API. What else we need to do to via REST API.

    POST /resources/json/delphix/authorization

    {

        "type": "Authorization",

        "role": "ROLE-1",

        "target": "<user_reference_number>",

        "user": "<user_reference_number>"

    }

    Is it a JS-only user? If so, you will not see anything for privileges.

    It is not a JS stream.

    What is the response if you get  the authorization or list the authorizations for that user? What version of Delphix are you on?

    Hi Ramesh,

    The commands you listed only give the user the OWNER role on itself (which is already given by default to a new user).  For admin privileges, you need to grant the user the OWNER permission on the DOMAIN object (the root object):
    POST /resources/json/delphix/authorization
    {
      "type": "Authorization",
      "role": "ROLE-1",
      "target": "DOMAIN",
      "user": "USER-53"
    }
    Hope that helps!
