Cockpit limited rights

Hi there,

i'm using the Fedora image and set a password via user-data. But when i open cockpit, a htaccess prompt appears where the creds (user fedora + pwd) arent accepted. After this, when i skip the prompt with cancel, the "regular" cockpit login shows up. There the login works, but with limited rights, ie. im not able to display the container section. Where did i miss the option to enable full access to cockpit? I think, I didnt set the root pw not at all?

Thanks in advance!

I believe cockpit roles are based on system groups, so right now you'd want to add an entry in /etc/group for the fedora user.

But, /etc/group may not have the wheel group listed in an Atomic host as they get picked up from /usr/lib/group. So check /usr/lib/group to see what the entry should read, add that to /etc/group with the fedora user, and then try logging into cockpit.

At least, that's what I did to get things working on a local set of Atomic hosts.

[fedora@atomic-host-001 ~]$ cat /etc/group

There may be a different way of enabling this, but I wasn't able to find one yet.

I experienced a similar problem. I can login with fedora credentials, but the user haven't the permissions to admin / manage docker.
