[ovirt-users] Users seeing all vm's

Hi Jeff, 

* I assume that we are talking about the User Portal, 
not the web-admin (to which the user cannot even log 
into, according to the permissions that you specified). 

* a permission is a triplet of role, user and object. 
according to what you are saying, the user's permission is: 
- role: Copy_of_UserRole [contains "Remote Log" only (???)]
- user: user
- object: ??? 

what is the object with which the user's permission 
is associated? I suspect it is "System", which would 
explain why the users sees all of the VMs in his user-
portal (permissions inheritance, as you suspected: all 
VMs are "descendants" of "System", therefore permissions 
on "System" are propagated to the VMs within the system)

* are there any additional permissions for this user? a 
screen-shot of the user's "Permissions" sub-tab in the 
User's main tab in the web-admin would be helpful. 

* does the user belong to any group that has permissions 
on the system? if so, this user could be inheriting these 
permissions from that group. 

* are you sure that the "Copy_of_UserRole" role contains 
only the "Remote Log" action? if not - that can explain 
why the user is able to perform actions on the VMs other 
than "Remote Log".
