if the cloud_controller.admin scope is in a user's OAuth token, then they are considered an administrator for cloud controller

What does cloud_controller.admin can do?
and for cloud_controller.read and cloud_controller.write?

Seems the user with cloud_controller.write can not create space or org, why?

The cloud_controller.admin scope can do pretty much anything on cloud_controller. The cloud_controller.write scope will grant that OAUTH token permission to act as that user and write to their spaces/orgs depending on their role (if they are SpaceDeveloper they can create apps on that space).

For more details on this you can try browsing through the access classes on the CC codebase, an example for app creation can be found at : https://github.com/cloudfoundry/cloud_controller_ng/tree/master/app/access

Please let us know if you need any further clarification.

Thanks,

To answer your last question:

cloud_controller.write will give the user permissions to create orgs if the feature_flag "user_org_creation" is set to true. Run `cf feature-flags` for more info, you can set it as admin with `cf enable-feature-flag user_org_creation`.
Creating spaces is allowed if the user is an OrgManager in the currently targeted organization. Again, an OrgManager or an admin can change the user role in an org by doing `cf set-org-role USERNAME ORG ROLE`.

Thanks

In short, if a user has cloud_controller.admin permission, he can do all POST/PUT/DELETE operations, if a user has cloud_controller.write permission, and he is OrgManager he can create/update/delete space not org.
And I checked the code, seems noly admin can create org.

Am I right?
