What permissions are required to grant access to manage Cluster Logging in Rancher v2.x

This document (000020106) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.



By default, only Global Admins or Cluster Owners have access to configure and manage Cluster Logging in a Rancher v2.x managed cluster. This article details the permissions required to grant this access to other users.


  • A Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher v2.x


Cluster Logging configuration is managed by the ClusterLoggings Custom Resource in the API Group. In order to create a role that grants permission to manage the logging configuration for a cluster, you should therefore grant all verbs on the CluserLoggings Resource in the API group.

You can define a custom Cluster Role via the Rancher UI, by navigating to the Global view, and selecting Security -> Roles -> Cluster, creating a custom role with these permissions. Granting this custom role on a cluster to a user or group will then provide access to manage the Cluster Logging configuration for that cluster.
