You can set the permissions for a resource by using the Orchestrator REST API.


Review the types of permissions that you can set and the syntax that you can use in the request body. See REST API Permissions.


  1. Make a GET request and retrieve the ID of the resource from the list of returned resources:
    GET http://{orchestrator_host}:{port}/vco/api/resources/
  2. In a REST client application, add request headers to define the properties of the resource for which you want to set permissions.
  3. In the request body, specify the permissions that you want to set.
  4. Make a POST request at the URL of the resource's permissions:
    POST http://{orchestrator_host}:{port}/vco/api/resources/{resourceID}/permissions/


If the POST request is successful, you receive the status code 201. Information about the resource's permissions is available in the response body.
