Overview

Security context constraints allow administrators to control permissions for pods. To learn more about this API type, see the security context constraints (SCCs) architecture documentation. You can manage SCCs in your instance as normal API objects using the CLI.

As an OpenShift Dedicated cluster administrator, you can list and view details for SCCs, but cannot edit or delete the default SCCs.

Listing Security Context Constraints

To get a current list of SCCs:

$ oc get scc

Examining a Security Context Constraints Object

To examine a particular SCC, use oc get, oc describe, oc export, or oc edit. For example, to examine the restricted SCC:

$ oc describe scc restricted
