VMware Cloud on AWS supports a well-defined Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) model. In a VMware Cloud on AWS Organisation, there are two roles available, namely: Organization Member and Organization Owner. Only the Organization Owner can invite additional users to your Organization.

As an organization owner, you can invite users to your organization and give them role-based access to the organization's resources.

When you invite users to your organizations, you assign two types of role-based access:

i) Role Assignment: Role-based access to the organization. As an organization owner with full access, or as an organization member with read-only access.

ii) Assign Service Roles: Access to one or more of the cloud services of the organization. You grant users access to the cloud service according to the roles provided by each cloud service.

Organization Roles and Permissions

To see the permissions each organization role enables, see the following table.
