Policy Definition

Documentation describing the policy definition file for vendor RBAC.

A policy is defined in a single JSON document.

  "v1": {
    "name": "Read Only",
    "resources": {
      "allowed": [
      "denied": [

There is some minimal metadata included, but the primary contents of a policy document is the resources key. The resources key should contain two arrays, identified as allowed and denied. As the names indicate, resources specified in the allowed list will be allowed for users assigned to the policy, and resources specified in the denied list will be denied.

Resource names are hierarchical, and support wildcards and globs. It’s possible to create a policy document that has conflicting rules, and the behavior here is predictable and documented.
