Cluster User Management
This document covers topics of user management in Pacific Research Platform kubernetes cluster. A user needs to first get an account on PRP portal.
Add a user to an existing namespace
After a successful authentication, the user becomes a guest. Either an admin of a namespace or a cluster admin can promote the user from guest to user by adding the user to a namespace.
Open Namespace manager in a browser, select the namespace:
Scroll to the bottom, type in the user's name or email, and cilick the "Add user" button:
Promote a user to admin
This task is usually requested by a faculty member in order to create namespaces, or an existing namespace admin wants to add another user as a namespace admin.
As an admin, the user can create namespaces from Namespace manager. If the user is added to a namespace, he/she will be added as an admin of the namespace.
If the user is a user of a namespace, and needs to be promoted to an admin of the same namespace, after changing the role to admin, delete the user from the namespace and add him/her again from Namespace manager.
Demote a namespace admin to user
Similar to the promoting process, run command:Namespace manager.
