About Roles and Access Control

ADx is shipped with the following fixed set of roles:

  • no role (default) - user who is allowed to connect to the Explorer and API of a repository.
  • adx-admin - adds the possibility to connect to the Administrator area and tribefire platform's Control Center.
  • adx-root - super user bypassing all security. Users with this role should only be used for testing purposes.
