[Deis document] management Deis operation of the task

Here are some of the common management of the Deis platform.

Manage users

Deis users are divided into two categories: regular users and administrators.
– Ordinary users can use the vast majority of Deis functions – create, deploy applications, add and remove domain names, etc.
– Administrators can perform all the operations of ordinary users, but they also have access to all application owners. The first user created on Deis automatically becomes an administrator.

Raise the user as an administrator

You can use the deis perms command to raise the role of an ordinary user to the administrator.
$ deis perms:create john --admin

Reissue the authentication token for the normal user

The Controller Component API uses a very common token-based HTTP authentication method. Token-type authentication for the client-server pattern, such as native desktop and mobile client is more applicable. Each platform user will be issued by the platform when the first registration of a token. If the token is compromised, you need to manually intervene to reissue an authentication token for that user. This step can be done via SSH through the node running the controller component and then opening a Django command line:
$ fleetctl ssh deis-controller
$ docker exec -it deis-controller python manage.py shell

At this point, let us re-issue a certified token for this user. We assume that this unlucky user name is Bob:

  >>> from django.contrib.auth.models import User 
>>> from rest_framework.authtoken.models import Token
>>> bob = User.objects.get (username = 'bob')
>>> token = Token.objects.get (user = bob)
>>> token.delete ()
>>> exit ()

At this point, Bob can no longer use his previous authentication token to pass the controller's authentication:
$ deis apps
Invalid token

Bob wants to be able to use the API again, he must log in to the controller and regain a new token:
$ deis login http://deis.example.com
username: bob
Logged in as bob
$ deis apps
=== Apps

Heads up! This alert needs your attention, but it's not super important.
