Access control—defining entries

1 minute readAutomation

Use this page to define access control entries selected from a filtered list of CloudBees CD/RO users, groups, or projects, or by providing an explicit name. The following instructions are generic. For example, if you chose Add User, the Filter field will be labeled "User Filter".

Field Name Description

Radio selector

Choose between selecting "Search for existing…​" or select "Provide explicit …​ name". Providing an explicit name bypasses the search and allows you to enter an arbitrary name.


Enter a partial name to retrieve a list of all users/groups/projects that include the partial name you supplied.

Include Inactive

[User/Group only]—Use this checkbox only if requesting external LDAP or Active Directory providers.

  • If "checked," all available users or groups are returned.

  • If not checked, only those users or groups known to the CloudBees CD/RO server are returned, for example, users who have logged in or groups containing users who have logged in.

Click OK to retrieve your information. If you entered filter criteria, the page will refresh with a list of matches. Select any row in this table to create an access control entry for that principal.

Column descriptions

  • Name: The name of the user, group, or project.

  • Location: The name combined with the location is the unique identifier for this user or group, local to the CloudBees CD/RO server. Only viewable for users or groups from non-local directory providers.
