Provide Explicit Deny in OO Central

Provide Explicit Deny in OO Central


Brief Description: In today's RBAC model, users are provided permissions depending on their RBAC Role and what that role has access to. It would be helpful to provide explicit deny of users permissions. 

Benefits/Value: This will allow the admin to filter permissions of the user and go as far as restricting access to specific resources / configurations / etc...

Hi @Jorge Cruz ,

Cannot this be achieved by removing the user from that role? Having permissions and entitlements on user level can over complicate the system and decrease its performance. That's why the RBAC model was chosen.

@daniel_crisan : Removing a user from the role will not resolve the problem. RBAC is managed at a group level, so all members of the group will be impacted by the role change.  Without an explicit 'DENY' we cannot restrict to individual user level.
