The RBAC feature enables restriction of access to Argo CD resources. Argo CD does not have its own
user management system and has only one built-in user
admin user is a superuser and
it has unrestricted access to the system. RBAC requires SSO configuration. Once SSO is
configured, additional RBAC roles can be defined, and SSO groups can man be mapped to roles.
RBAC configuration allows defining roles and groups. Argo CD has two pre-defined roles:
role:readonly- read-only access to all resources
role:admin- unrestricted access to all resources These role definitions can be seen in builtin-policy.csv
Additional roles and groups can be configured in
argocd-rbac-cm ConfigMap. The example below
configures a custom role, named
org-admin. The role is assigned to any user which belongs to
your-github-org:your-team group. All other users get the default policy of
which cannot modify Argo CD settings.
