globus endpoint role show - Show full info for a role on an endpoint


globus endpoint role show ['OPTIONS'] 'ENDPOINT_ID' 'ROLE_ID'


The globus endpoint role show command shows information for a specific role granted to a user or group on an endpoint. It does not show information about the permissions granted by a role; only what role a user or group has been granted, by name.

You must have sufficient privileges to see the roles on the endpoint.


--map-http-status 'TEXT'

Map non success HTTP response codes to exit codes other than 1. e.g. "--map-http-satus 403=0,404=0" would exit with 0 even if a 403 or 404 http error code was received. Valid exit codes are 0,1,50-99.

-F, --format '[json|text]'

Set the output format for stdout. Defaults to "text".

--jq, --jmespath 'EXPR'

Supply a JMESPath expression to apply to json output. Takes precedence over any specified '--format' and forces the format to be json processed by this expression.

A full specification of the JMESPath language for querying JSON structures may be found at

-h, --help

Show help text for this command.

-v, --verbose

Control the level of output.

Use -v or --verbose to show warnings and any additional text output.

Use -vv to add informative logging.

Use -vvv to add debug logging and full stack on any errors. (equivalent to -v --debug)


Textual output has the following fields:

  • 'Principal Type'

  • 'Principal'

  • 'Role'

The principal is a user or group ID, and the principal type says which of these types the principal is. The term "Principal" is used in the sense of "a security principal", an entity which has some privileges associated with it.
