In this tutorial, you will learn how to create users, assign them to groups and create policies to control access to namespaces.


Step 1 of 4


Namespaces help different projects or teams share a StorageOS cluster by isolating volumes or rules. One namespace is created on startup, the default namespace:

storageos namespace ls

You can create new namespaces with the storageos namespace command:

storageos namespace create restricted

To create a volume in the new namespace, set the --namespace flag:

storageos volume create --namespace restricted vol

and view the namespaced volume:

storageos volume ls

All of the management done with the CLI in this example can also be done using the GUI. You can access the GUI using the link below and login as User: storageos with password: storageos https://[[HOST_SUBDOMAIN]]-5705-[[KATACODA_HOST]].environments.katacoda.com/
