This release of the Management Console service introduces the following changes:

New authorization model

CDP introduces a new authorization model. The following table summarizes new, changed, and deprecated roles. The roles that are not mentioned in this table are unchanged.

Account roles

Roles Description
New account role
  • EnvironmentCreator
This is a new account-level role.
Deprecated account roles
  • EnvironmentAdmin
  • EnvironmentUser
These roles have been deprecated in June 2020 and have been removed from the official documentation.

Resource roles

Roles Description
New environment resource roles
  • DataSteward
  • DataHubCreator
These roles can be assigned on the scope of a specific environment.
New Data Hub resource role
  • DataHubAdmin (Technical Preview)
This role can be assigned on the scope of a specific Data Hub.
New shared resource role
  • SharedResouceUser
This role can be assigned on the scope of a specific shared resource (cluster template, credential, image catalog, or recipe). Note that unlike other shared resources, proxies can only be managed by a PowerUser.
New resource role applicable to environments, Data Hubs, shared resources, and classic clusters
  • Owner
Grants all permissions required to manage the resource in CDP including the ability to delete it, but does not grant any cluster-level access. The user creating the resource automatically gets the Owner role on that resource.

Steps for assigning roles

  • The steps for assigning account roles and managing access to environments are unchanged.
  • The steps for managing access to Data Hubs, shared resources (cluster templates, credentials, image catalogs, and recipes), and classic clusters are similar to the steps for managing access to environments: You can use the Manage access option from the resource details page.
