Manage users

XL Deploy has a role-based security system with two types of users:

  • Internal users: that are created by an XL Deploy administrator and managed by XL Deploy.
  • External users: that are maintained in an LDAP repository such as Active Directory.

After you configure LDAP security, external users can log in, at which point they are stored in XL Release as external users. For more information, see Connect XL Deploy to your LDAP or Active Directory

You can assign both internal and external users to roles to which you assign global permissions For more information, see Set up roles and permissions.

Important: The Users page is only available to users who have the Admin or Edit Security global permission.

To view and edit XL Deploy users, in the top navigation bar, select User management > Users.
