API Security

Hi,

I am a bit confused about how the API and maprcli security works. For example, I can use the `maprcli dashboard info` command as the MapR admin ID and as `user` (a different user ID) but it seems that I must use the MapR admin ID to get data from the `maprcli alarm list` command -- no data is returned when using that command as `user`.

FYI, the alternate user ID I use is registered in the MapR metrics database:

    grant all privileges on metrics.* to 'user';

Also, it seems that `user` cannot see alarms in the MapR Control System either.

**How do I set up `user` so that that ID can see information such as the alarm list?**
