[pve-devel] [PATCH v4 container 16/18] fix #2582: api: add checks for 'SuperUser' privilege for root-only options

Oguz Bektas o.bektas at proxmox.com
Thu Jun 2 09:24:48 CEST 2022


this way we can allow regular users to act as superuser on specific
paths by giving them the (new) builtin 'SuperAdministrator' role or a
custom role with the 'SuperUser' privilege
