Create and manage roles

A role is a personality that a user assumes to perform a specific set
of operations. A role includes a set of rights and privileges. A user
assumes that role inherits those rights and privileges.

Note

OpenStack Identity service defines a user’s role on a project, but it
is completely up to the individual service to define what that role
means. This is referred to as the service’s policy. To get details about
what the privileges for each role are, refer to the
policy.json file available for each service in the
/etc/SERVICE/policy.json file. For example, the policy
defined for OpenStack Identity service is defined in the
/etc/keystone/policy.json file.
