New custom role can't resize LUN on OnCommand

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • OnCommand


  • When trying to create a custom role (as described here) to access and manage LUNs on OnCommand, this new role doesn't have the possibility to resize.
  • This new user has access to LUNs:
::>security login rest-role create -vserver <Vserver> -role <role name> -api "/api/storage/luns" -access all                                
Should allow us to modify the LUN configuration: 
Warning: This operation will also affect the following commands:
   "lun create"
   "lun modify"
  • But doesn't have access to the following actions: Delete, Map, Move-in-volume, Resize, Unmap.
