Limited Access - This capability is enabled selectively for Orgs and is not available to all Prod Orgs.


Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC) enhances the existing roles available in the platform to meet the evolving demands of complex systems. ABAC provides a more flexible and dynamic approach to control access by considering a wide range of contextual attributes. This addresses the need for fine-grained access control and enhanced security in organizations.

Only Org Admin can configure ABAC rules, policies, and custom roles.

Implementing Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC)

The Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC) implementation involves the following three steps:

  • Step 1 - Create Rules: In ABAC, rules are formulated based on attributes associated with the projects, resources, and resource types. By creating rules, you define whether a specific action should be allowed or denied

  • Step 2 - Create Policies: Policies is a collection of one or more rules that is referenced as part of creation of Custom Roles

  • Step 3 - Custom Roles: A Custom Role configuration includes selection of a base role along with the necessary overlay ABAC policies
