Managing user accounts

CloudBees platform for SDM is a preview, with early access for select preview members. Product features and documentation are frequently updated. If you find an issue or have a suggestion, please contact support@cloudbees.com.

CloudBees platform for SDM has two roles available for accounts: 'admin' and 'user'.

An administrator, or 'admin', is a user who has access to additional functions in CloudBees Network Portal, including creating, modifying, and deleting accounts.

A 'user' role can only modify the profile associated with their account in CloudBees Network Portal.
