Scope of permissions

The scope of the permissions is the concept that not all permissions have the same impact. Some permissions have impact on a different level.

The schema below shows the relation between the levels in a CHILI GraFx Subscription, to then explain the impact of permissions (roles) on these levels

  GraFx-Subscription ||--|{ GraFx-Environment : Has

A GraFx Subscription

Roles defined on the Subscription level have permission with impact for all environments. These contain operations like managing the lifecycle of identities and environments.


An environment is the smallest level, where documents are grouped to serve an application. The minimum restriction you can apply to a set of resources, is the environment level.


Roles (and permissions) on the environment level affect only the specific environment.
