Abiquo enables administrators to control the visibility of certain UI elements. This is done through UI configuration and through privileges.
Examples of UI configuration, use properties in client-config-custom.json:
Examples of UI element visibility in Configuration View:
The Abiquo system of roles and privileges ensures that the platform only displays what the user can access.
To enter each of the main Abiquo views, the user requires a privilege. See Configure the main menu button bar
The Cloud Admin has a full set of icons on the main menu bar. The Cloud Admin can create enterprises and users, and manage roles and scopes.
By default, the Enterprise Admin can manage resources for their tenant or tenants. As an example, if you decide to allow the tenant admin to manage users, then you can give them access to the Users view, but they will have limited access. For example, you can allow them to administer users of their own tenant only, without privileges to manage roles and scopes.
By default, the Cloud User role has only the most basic icons of the menu. This user cannot access the other views, including the Users view.
At a user level, the default Enterprise viewer role is for a "read only" user of Abiquo and the privileges assigned to this role enable the user to view virtual resources at a basic cloud user level.
The following privileges are some examples of how to control the display and use of specific features:
