Table of Contents

Delete a permission record (i.e. user role) for the account a user is logged in to.

Table of Contents


Example Call


  • You must remove the 'observer' permission last or you will receive an error. The observer role allows a user to login and view the RightScale Dashboard.
  • Permissions can only be deleted one at a time since you are removing the permission ID associated to the user role.
curl -i -H X_API_VERSION:1.5 -b mycookie -X DELETE
