Managing teams and permissions

3 minute readAudit and compliance

The section describes how to update members on a team and how to manage permissions.

The team and permission management system allows you to scale your feature flagging settings to teams. Using the team and permission management system, you can do the following tasks:

  • Invite new users

  • Change user permissions

  • Delete a user from a CloudBees Feature Management application

  • Delete a user from the team

Managing permissions

When logged in, click Permissions from the left-hand menu.

This will take you to the main permissions screen, where you will see a list of all users, initially you would only see yourself. This includes information about their name, email address, role, and access to any environments you have created.

Admin user

Only Admin users can create new applications, invite new users to an application, change their permissions, or delete users from an application or a team.

Inviting new users

To invite new users:

  1. Click Invite New User at the top right corner of the screen, just below your name.

  2. This will open a Invite New User dialog.

  3. Enter the email of the team member you would like to invite.

    1. If the user is already a member of your team in a different application, the user will appear in the drop-down menu for selection.

  4. Select the type of permission you would like to give that user and for which environment.

  5. There are two types of permissions:

    1. Read-Only - View all features deployment settings without the ability to change anything.

    2. Full Access - Edit all feature deployment settings.

  6. Click Add User or cancel.

  7. If you added a user, you will now see that user on the Permissions page.

    1. The user will have a pending label next to this name until they accept the invitation.

  8. The new user receives an email invitation to join the application.

Sometimes when you invite a user to CloudBees Feature Management, you get an error saying the email address is already in use. This can happen when a user has already used their email address to create a trial account.

To solve this please ask the user to delete their trial account, and invite them to your CloudBees Feature Management organization again.

Alternatively, if the user has a GSuite or Outlook 365 account, you can invite them to CloudBees Feature Management using an email alias. An email alias account is the email address of the user you wish to invite with a plus sign (+) and additional text string appended. is an alias of Both GSuite or Outlook 365 would ignore anything after the (+) sign, so emails to both and would get delivered.

  1. Click on the row corresponding to that user.

  2. You will now see a dialog box with the current user permissions settings for all environments. Make the desired changes and click Save.
