Rancher logging has two roles,
logging-admingives users full access to namespaced
logging-viewallows users to view namespaced
Why choose one role over the other? Edit access to
ClusterOutputresources is powerful. Any user with it has edit access for all logs in the cluster.
In Rancher, the cluster administrator role is the only role with full access to all
rancher-logging resources. Cluster members are not able to edit or read any logging resources. Project owners and members have the following privileges:
|Project Owners||Project Members|
|able to create namespaced ||only able to view the |
|can collect logs from anything in their projects' namespaces||cannot collect any logs in their projects' namespaces|
Both project owners and project members require at least one namespace in their project to use logging. If they do not, then they may not see the logging button in the top nav dropdown.
