RBAC is a free feature that is available to selected open cloud services with an API.
Customers can opt out by simply removing the account users.
Yes, RBAC is available to all Rackspace customers.
Yes, you can. See Managing: Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) for instructions.
You can query the roles for a given user by using the List User Global Roles API operation described in the Cloud Identity Client Developer Guide. Additionally, you can view the roles that a user has through http://MyCloud.rackspace.com.
You may view only one account at a time in the New Cloud Control Panel.
At this time, only the account owner can view the tags. Account owners can rename servers at any time to help alleviate any confusion. To change a server name, click the actions cog next to the server name and select Rename Server.
Per-billing and per-user usage are not offered at this time.
All users can create support tickets; however, only the account owner is updated on the ticket status.
Not at this time, but we are working on developing and delivering that functionality.
RBAC is limited to granting a user control over a given product. It is not granular enough to restrict access to individual servers, files, or directories.
Yes, at this time more features are available through the API. For more information about using the API for RBAC see the Rackspace API Documentation.
With the implementation of RBAC, account owners can leave permissions as they are in MyRackspace or set up restricted access to specific products for users through the New Cloud Control Panel. For more detailed information see Using RBAC with MyRackspace.
These permissions cannot be linked at this time. Having a common permission scheme between dedicated, hybrid, and cloud customers will be addressed in the future.
All resources for an account are shared across users that have the correct roles. In other words, account users do not have their own set of resources but share a pool of resources that other users of the account may have access to.
This is the initial pop-up window that appears when you enable RBAC.
For information about additional products that will be RBAC enabled in the future, see RBAC Overview.
For information about changing your admin credentials, see Managing RBAC.
For access to the Cloud Control Panel, see the Rackspace Cloud Control Panel.
