wf assign

wf assign

Assign allows you to assign a role to a robot


Assignment lets workspace members assign a security policy to one more robots. A common example would be to create a robot and then assign a deployment role to the robot to permit deploying an application into the cluster. You cannot assign policies to human users—humans use role assumption rather than statically assigned policies (see wf assume --help).

Assignment policies are granted to workspace members by the workspace administrator, who has the rights to specify constraints on who can assign a policy to a robot, and any other requirements that must be met.

# View the assignements that you can make

# View all the roles that are available. Use -o yaml to view policy.
