Users

FlexDeploy requires an authenticated login by a defined user within its repository. When FlexDeploy is installed, administrator would have created default administration user and password. Administrators can further create more users or integrate with enterprise directory servers for user access.

By default, all users are displayed in the search results. To refine the search results, select one or more criteria options and click the Search button. Select the Any radio button to indicate that the search results should include users matching any of the specified criteria, or the All radio button to indicate that the search results should only include users matching all of the specified criteria. Click the Reset button to clear the search criteria form.

Finally, check any events under Notification User Attributes for which this user should receive notifications when he or she is the submitter of a build or deployment request. The user will then receive an email notification when the corresponding event occurs. Users who commit code which is included in a build are also notified of these events when selected.

User Details and User Attributes can be updated by the user as Self Service. Group Membership can only be updated by FlexDeploy Administrators.
