Granular access types for VSI's (not just 'access' or 'no access'

Dear Team,

IBM Bluemix portal used by VF team to maintain its infrastructure for cloud products, what QA team observed is that Reviewer role user can see and update the device password, ideally which should be restricted due to security reasons and not explored to read on access. I raised this issue with support team but they responded back with below answer

Unfortunately there is no way to allow access to most of the server info and not the password information. The way the access works in our portal for details about a sever is full access, or no access. We have user settings for being able to reboot, initiate an OS reload, manage\create images, or editing the host name. We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause.


I would suggest to add this issue in your future release as an enhancement and if possible plz share roughly timeline for the fix of this issue .


Kind Regards,

Tejpal Singh
