Authentication and Authorization in Edge Flow Manager
This video covers the security aspects of Edge Flow Manager (EFM). It shows the differences between an admin and a regular user. The important thing to note is that authorization is based on Agent Classes so if a user has no defined policy on a particular Agent Class, then the user won’t see any class / agent / event information that belongs to such a class.
For convenience users can be grouped so permissions can be inherited from pre-defined groups.
EFM recognizes three roles other than Admin, namely:
- Viewer: Can see information about an Agent Class
- Designer: Is able to design flow definition
- Operator: Is able to publish flow and execute commands
