Managing Users

Kontena Platform may be used from Kontena Cloud as a hosted solution or it may be installed as a custom setup. Depending how the Kontena Platform is deployed, learn how to manage users:

Managing Users with Kontena Cloud

This section is for people using the Kontena Cloud and hosted Kontena Platform deployments. If you are using custom Kontena Platform deployment, please see Managing Users with Custom Kontena Platforms section below.

The users of Kontena Cloud may take advantage of advanced user management. All Kontena Cloud users have by default their own personal account, but in addition they may belong to one or more organizations. As a member of organization, the user role may be admin or member. Admin users can manage the organization settings and invite more users. Members may use the organization resources. If you have a personal Kontena Cloud account, you are automatically Admin of this personal "organization", but you can not invite more users.

The users who are members of an organization, may be assigned to hosted Kontena Platforms with different roles: devops or dev. The roles and their description within the scope of platform the role is given:

  • devops - The super user. Can do everything.
  • dev - The developer user. Can use Kontena Platform to deploy stacks, access logs, use Kontena Vault and more.

Managing Users with Custom Kontena Platforms

This section is for people using the custom Kontena Platform deployments. If you are using Kontena Cloud and hosted Kontena Platform deployments, please see Managing Users with Kontena Cloud section above.

Custom Kontena Platform deployments use built-in user management. The first user that logs in to Kontena Platform Master will be assigned to the master_admin role. The master admin can invite new users to the Kontena Platform Master and assign users to the master_admin or grid_admin roles. Here's the breakdown of roles:

master_admin

  • can invite users to Kontena Platform Master and manage their roles
  • can manage all Kontena Platform Grids, Kontena Platform Grid users and their users

grid_admin

  • can manage Kontena Platform Grid users

user

  • can only operate within a Kontena Platform Grid

Please note, the role user is automatically assigned to any user added to a Kontena Platform Grid using the Add User to Grid command. There is no need to assign the role explicitly in this case.
