3. Role-Based Access Controls

Ansible Tower 3.7 contains minor updates to the Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) system. For the latest RBAC documentation, refer to the Role-Based Access Controls section in the Tower User Guide.

3.1. Organization field on Job Templates

Job templates in Ansible Tower now include an organization field in the API. This is set on creation based on the organization of the project used by the Job Template, and cannot be changed. Because of this, a project’s organization cannot be changed once it is in use by Job Templates.

This changes visibility and access to job templates. Previously, an admin of the organization that a job template’s inventory belonged to would also be granted admin access to the job template. While existing permissions are preserved on an upgrade to Ansible Tower 3.7, newly created jobs will only grant view access to the job template to the inventory admin in this scenario.
