User Permissions

Slurm supports several special user permissions as described below.

Operator

These users can add, modify, and remove any database object (user, account, etc), and add other operators. On a SlurmDBD served cluster, these users can

  • View information that is blocked to regular uses by a PrivateData flag
  • Create/Alter/Delete Reservations

Set using an AdminLevel option in the user's database record. For configuration information, see Accounting and Resource Limits.

Admin

These users have the same level of privileges as an operator in the database. They can also alter anything on a served slurmctld as if they were the SlurmUser or root.

An AdminLevel option in the user's database record. For configuration information, see Accounting and Resource Limits.

Coordinator

A special privileged user, usually an account manager or such, that can add users or sub-accounts to the account they are coordinator over. This should be a trusted person since they can change limits on account and user associations inside their realm.

Set using a table in Slurm's database defining user's and accounts for which they can serve as coordinators. For configuration information, see the sacctmgr man page.
