Scenario: Have 2 projects/tenants:

  1. Project1 - userA
  2. Project2 - userB

UserA performs following steps:

  • creates a block device volume; get's some data populated
  • create a snapshot of a volume

Now, UserA wants to give permission to userB (in project2) to the newly created snapshot so that userB can than create a new volume using that snapshot.
