  • Once registered you will receive an email at the registered email id. Verify your email to start using rolloutMan
  • Do note that in most cases, only one User is sufficient to be registered for a company / enterprise. All further users can be created / defined by this one user. 
rolloutMan assumes that the first user registered is the "Administrator" user. All further users can be added by this user. More users could be made as Administrator or with other roles.  Refer User and Roles section for more details on users and roles.
