About Permissions

Your ability to perform actions in Apps Manager depends on your user role and the feature flags that the admin sets. For more information about feature flags, see Using Feature Flags.

The table below shows the relationship between specific org and space management actions and the non-admin user roles who can perform them. A non-admin user must be a member of the org and space to perform these actions.

Admin users can perform all of these actions using either the cf CLI or by logging into Apps Manager as an Org Manager, using the UAA Admin credentials.

Space Managers assign and remove users from spaces by setting and unsetting their roles within the space.
