User Access Control¶
You can limit users’ access to specific features and resources in SolusVM 2 using roles and permissions. Additionally, you can allow access for particular user(like administrator) only from certain IP addresses or IP networks.
Limiting Users’ Access using Roles and Permissions¶
There are two built-in roles in SolusVM 2, "ADMIN" and "CLIENT".
The "ADMIN" role has full access to all features and resources in SolusVM 2.
The "CLIENT" role allows to create new virtual servers and manage own virtual servers. The list of permissions for the "CLIENT" role is as follows:
- get applications
- get os images
- get locations
- resize servers
Built-in roles can't be edited or deleted.
You can create your own roles with custom permissions and assign them to users.
Restricting Access by IP Address¶
You can use field "Allowed IPs" to allow user access SolusVM 2 only from certain IP addresses or IP networks. "Allowed IPs" accepts networks 10.0.0.0/8 and an exact IP addresses like 192.168.0.123. The restriction will be applied for UI and API.
