Resource Manager Client Admin Operations Overview
Tasks related to the resource data model only apply to resources based on 1st generation shells. While CloudShell supports 1st generation shells, we recommend using 2nd generation shells, which already include all the data modeling and configurations, and offer enhanced shell management capabilities. For details, see Shells Overview.
Admin responsibilities include:
- Defining the resource data model
- Populating the resource data model
- Adding users, groups, and domains
- Assigning users to groups and domains
- Setting up the CloudShell license server
Note: Some of these actions are performed in Resource Manager Client and others in CloudShell Portal.
Define the resource data hierarchy
After defining the data model, structure resource families and models into a logical hierarchy.
Build the attributes repository
Use attributes to define resource runtime behavior, to assist with route resolution, and to define blueprint categories.
Add resource families and models
Define the various models for each type or resource family, and populate the resource repository with instances of these models.
Define CloudShell users
Add or import your users into CloudShell.
Control permission levels
Manage user access to resources by assigning them users to groups. Permission levels are determined by group membership.
Associating groups with domains allows the group's user access to domain resources.
