Account Permission Comparison: Instructor, TA, and Student

Each type of Cyber Range account (or role) has varying permission levels. For example, instructors can create courses and reset (wipe and reprovision) exercises, but TAs can only reset exercises, while students can do neither. Listed below are each account type's specific permissions.


These permissions are subject to change.
