Answer

The minimum permissions required for the Trident Administrator User for SolidFire Backends are Accounts and Volumes.

  • Volume access is needed to create the volume.
  • Account permissions are needed to read/set the CHAP credentials for the user account.

Optional privileges are Reporting and Cluster Admin.

  • Cluster Admin is needed if you want trident to be able create the account for you if it doesn’t exist.
  • Reporting is more restrictive than Read access, but still allows API commands related to gathering cluster statistics. This does allow access to a handful of read-only commands that are otherwise only available to ClusterAdmins
