"Server Error, Error Code- 1002, Error Message "cannot set space role because user is not part of the org" is seen when Using CF set-space-role


Pivotal Cloud Foundry® (PCF) 1.5.x, 1.6.x, and 1.7.x


When a user is trying to set a space-role using, cf set-space-role they get the following error:

Server error, error code: 1002, message: cannot set space role because user is not part of the org


This happens because the admin user is trying to set a space-role for a specific user without setting an org-role. For the user to belong to particular space (by getting a space-role), the user must be part of the organizations (that space resides in) first (by getting an org-role).


Resolving this issue is quite easy. Simply issue the following command:

$ cf set-org-role USERNAME ORG (OrgManager/BillingManager/OrgAuditor)

After the user has an org-role set for them, any org or space admin should be able to use the cf set-space-role to set a space-role for the user.
