User settings

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

  • Internal users: that are created by a Release administrator and managed by Release.
  • 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 Release as external users.

You can assign both internal and external users to roles, to which you assign global permissions.

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

To view and edit Release users: In the top navigation bar, select User management > Users.

To create an internal user:

  3. In the Name field, enter the user’s full name, as it should appear in overviews and tasks.

  5. Click Save.

Change internal user properties

To change the user name, name, email address, or password of an internal user, click the user’s name on the Users page.

You cannot change the properties of external users from the Release interface because they are maintained in LDAP.
