Getting Started on the DevOps Platform

Resources to help product team become productive as quickly and effectively as possible when using the BC Gov DevOps OpenShift platform.

Granting a user access to a project

As the owner of the project, initially you are the only one who can access it and work in it. If you need to collaborate on a project with other users, you can add additional members to the project. When adding a user to the project, they can be added in one of three primary roles.

  • admin - A project manager. The user will have rights to view any resource in the project and modify any resource in the project except for quota. A user with this role for a project will be able to delete the project.
  • edit - A user that can modify most objects in a project, but does not have the power to view or modify roles or bindings. A user with this role can create and delete applications in the project.
  • view - A user who cannot make any modifications, but can see most objects in a project.

To add another user with edit role to the project, so they can create and delete applications, you need to use the oc adm policy command. You must be in the project when you run this command.

oc adm policy add-role-to-user edit <collaborator>

Replace <collaborator> with the name of the user as displayed by the oc whoami command when run by that user.

To remove a user from a project, run:

oc adm policy remove-role-from-user edit <collaborator>

To get a list of the users who have access to a project, and in what role, a project manager can run the oc get rolebindings command.
