Personas are a method to design for an ideal target and help you define a baseline for identity and access management. Personas allow you to use a common language and make when defining access based on specific responsibilities and organizational structures.

Personas describe ideal or conceptual targets, but these personas are typically aligned with real people and their job responsibilities. Each organization defines the roles and responsibilities for a persona. The following is an example of baseline personas defined by Advanced Load Balancing for VMware Cloud Foundation validated solution and their equivalent access. This can be used as the basis for building your own delegation of roles.
