Configuring and Using RBAC (Task Map)

To use RBAC effectively requires planning. Use the following task map to plan, initially implement, and use RBAC at your site.

For Instructions
1. Plan for RBAC
Involves examining your site's security needs, and deciding how to use RBAC at your site.
2. Configure users who can assume a role
Ensures that users who can assume an administrative role exist.
3. Create roles
Creates roles and assigns the roles to users
4. (Optional) Create privileged users
Creates users who are directly assigned privileges or authorizations.
5. (Recommended) Audit role actions
Preselect an audit class that includes an audit event that records role actions.
Assume a role
