Viewing and changing access control privileges on objects

1 minute readDeveloper productivity

CloudBees CD/RO provides a comprehensive access control mechanism to control how individuals use the system. For a general discussion of access control in CloudBees CD/RO, refer to Access control.

  • Users must sign in to view information or perform operations.

  • After you log in, system access is limited based on:

    • User name.

    • Groups to which that user belongs.

    • Permissions specified for various CloudBees CD/RO objects.

While configuring access control is primarily an administrative function, individual users may want to view their direct privileges and inherited privileges for specific objects, and change permissions on selected objects.

For many CloudBees CD/RO objects, access control is configured from the object’s editor view via the Access Control selection on the Object Menu. Select Access Control to open the Access Control dialog.
