XL Release includes fine-grained access control that ensures the security of your releases. In XL Release, you assign internal and external users to roles that determine the global permissions that they have. Global permissions apply across the entire XL Release system.
Important: The Permissions page is only available to users who have the Admin or Edit Security global permission.
To configure permissions for roles: In the top navigation bar, select User management > Permissions.
The following global permissions are available:
|Edit security||Access to the Roles and Permissions pages and permission to edit security on releases and templates|
|Create template||Create a new template|
|Create release||Create a release from any template; also see the Create Release template permission|
