User Details

2 minute readAutomation

This page displays external user information from a repository such as LDAP or Active Directory. To edit this information, you must connect directly to the repository. However, you can associate properties with an external user and then use those properties in CloudBees CD/RO.

User Details Column Descriptions

Column NameDescription

User Name

Name of the user. The name combined with the location are the unique identifier for this user local to the CloudBees CD/RO server.

Repository

Repository containing the user. This is usually LDAP or Active Directory.

Local means local to the CloudBees CD/RO server. Other names in this column refer to defined directory providers.

Location

“Path” to the group in a hierarchy such as Active Directory or another LDAP directory provider. This is viewable only for users or groups from nonlocal directory providers. This is useful if you use Active Directory and nested groups.

Real Name

Real, given name for the user.

Email

User’s email address as known within the system.

Last Login Time

Date and time of the user’s last login.

Groups

Groups that include this user. Clicking a group name displays the Group Details page, which lists all members in that group.

Parent Groups

Parent groups for remote or external users if the repository (directory provider) to which the user belongs was configured with Recursively Traverse Group Hierarchy when the directory provider was defined.

This field displays the groups in the LDAP or Active Directory server hierarchy in which the user’s immediate groups are members. For example, if:

  • the user belongs to the “SFO” group,

  • and the “SFO” group belongs to the “California” group,

  • and the “California” group belongs to the “US” group,

then the Parent Groups field for the user will display “California, US,” and the Groups field will display “SFO.”

To configure your LDAP and Active Directory account repositories to communicate with CloudBees CD/RO, click the Administration > Directory Providers tab.

After the user is registered, the Custom User Properties section and the Access Control button appear.

Modifying User Properties or Assigning Custom User Properties
