Create a new role

Use Create New RoleAPI to create a new role with permissions in the Control Room.

Prerequisites

View and Manage Roles
Users who have view and manage roles permissions can view, create, and manage roles.
JSON Web Token (JWT)
All Control Room APIs require a JSON Web Token (JWT) to access the APIs. Generate an authentication token using the Authentication API. See Authentication API.
  • URL: http://<your_control_room_url>/v1/usermanagement/roles

    Replace the content in the angle brackets with your Control Room URL.

  • Method: POST.
  • Use the Swagger definition files installed with your Control Room to test the APIs. View the available Swagger APIs at: http://<your_control_room_url>/swagger/.
  • You can also use a REST client to complete this task.

Procedure

  1. Add an authentication token to the request header.
    Use the Authentication API to generate a JSON Web Token. See Authentication API.
  2. Select POST as the method.
    POST http://<your_control_room_url>/v1/usermanagement/roles

Note: You can also run REST requests from a command terminal. The following is a curl request example. This example is formatted for readability. Replace the text inside the angle brackets, <authentication_token>, with your authentication token.
curl -X POST "http://<your_control_room_url>/v1/usermanagement/roles" 
-H "accept: application/json" 
-H "X-Authorization: <authentication_token>" 
-H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{
