If you have the appropriate role permissions, you can administer RBAC role
assignments in the Control Center UI rather than using the Confluent CLI. The following
predefined RBAC roles can manage roles or view roles for other users in Confluent Platform:
If a principal is a Kafka
super.user but does not have a role
assignment, they cannot view or assign roles using the Control Center
super.user can still use the CLI to assign roles. For
more information on
super.user access and use, see
Troubleshoot role assignments.
When RBAC is enabled for Control Center, and you have the proper role permissions,
the View my role assignments and the Manage role assignments options
appear on the Control Center Administration menu:
To access the Roles page, click the Manage role assignments option
from the Control Center Administration menu.
Use this page to view the available RBAC roles and their descriptions.
