Create and Manage Restriction Sets

The restrictions set is a customizable group of limitations. You can configure restrictions sets to create a sub-admin role, i.e. reseller role, with control over a limited amount of cloud resources. Comparing to administrator's role, resellers have admin permissions within specific part of the cloud. This section contains information on how you can create, edit and delete restrictions sets.

Create Restrictions Sets



To create a restrictions set:

  1. Go to the Control Panel > Admin > Sets menu.
  2. Press the "+" button or click the Create Set button at the bottom of the screen.
  3. On the screen that follows, fill in the restrictions set details:
    • Label - choose a name for the restrictions set
    • Roles - select the roles that will be limited under the restrictions set
    • Resources - choose the resources you want to limit for the resellers assigned to the role specified above. You can restrict users by bucket or user group or both:

      • Buckets - if restricted by buckets, the resellers will be able to access only those resources which are added to a bucket. If nothing is added to a bucket, no resources will be available.
      • User groups - if the resource is restricted by the user group, the reseller will be able to access only the resources available to the users of the reseller's group.
      • Buckets and User groups - if the resource is restricted both by user group and bucket, the reseller's access to this resource will be defined by both these limitations at the same time. For the list of resources that can be limited under a restrictions set, see List of Restrictions Resources.
  4. Click the Submit button to finish.
