This topic describes the user privileges for Delphix objects.

Provisioner, Owner, Data Operator, and Reader Privileges

The user roles on Delphix objects consist of four types, which the Engine Admin user assigns: ProvisionerOwnerData Operator, and Reader. These privileges apply both to objects, such as dSources and Virtual Databases (VDBs), and to groups, which are containers that hold those objects.

The Engine Admin user can assign privileges to groups, dSources and VDBs. Privileges are inherited, meaning that privileges assigned to a group are effective for the dSources and VDBs contained in that group.

If a user does not have a privilege in relation to an object or group, then he or she has no visibility into that object or group.

All commands are limited by the privilege level of the user who is executing them. For example, a user with Reader privileges cannot execute the Virtual to Physical command.

Owner Rights for Target Group

In order to provision a VDB to a target group, you must also have owner privileges for that group.

Roles and Privileges for Delphix Objects

Only delphix_admin and Self-Service Only (Jet Stream Only) users have access to the Self Service (Jet Stream) UI and objects (bookmarks, templates etc).
