Re: Setting Org Manager via API


CF Runtime
 

Hi Daniel,

The purpose of the Associate User with the Organization endpoint is to add
a user to an organization. This endpoint needs to be called before a user
can be added to the organization's spaces. This is why the CLI
automatically adds the user to the organization's user list.

Associate Managed Organization with the User is the same call as Associate
Manager with the Organization
<http://apidocs.cloudfoundry.org/210/organizations/associate_manager_with_the_organization.html>,
but it uses the relation starting from the user rather than the
organization. We don't recommend using this endpoint, as only admins have
full access to the users list, and they may not be able to look the user up
this way. We have stories in our backlog to address this.

The CF Runtime Team,
Utako && Dan

Hi all,

I'm working on some automation for my client to declaratively configure
orgs and spaces across multiple Cloud Foundry instances (hopefully they'll
permit open-sourcing this).

I erroneously tried to set a user as an OrgManager by first calling Associate
Managed Organization with the User
<http://apidocs.cloudfoundry.org/210/users/associate_managed_organization_with_the_user.html>;
after getting InvalidRelation errors I used CF_TRACE to spy on the CLI, and
realised that it instead uses Associate Manager with the Organization
<http://apidocs.cloudfoundry.org/210/organizations/associate_manager_with_the_organization.html>
.

I've got a few questions:

- What's the purpose of the Associate User with the Organization
<http://apidocs.cloudfoundry.org/210/organizations/associate_user_with_the_organization.html> CC
API call?


- If I don't call Associate User with the Organization
<http://apidocs.cloudfoundry.org/210/organizations/associate_user_with_the_organization.html>,
what effects can I expect to see?


- Is Associate User with the Organization
<http://apidocs.cloudfoundry.org/210/organizations/associate_user_with_the_organization.html> something
that only exists for the benefit of the Pivotal console app?


- What's the correct usage of Associate Managed Organization with the
User
<http://apidocs.cloudfoundry.org/210/users/associate_managed_organization_with_the_user.html>
?




Admin
Adding a user to an org
Adding user as manager to org
Adding user to manager list

Not an admin







Many thanks in advance.
