Chapter 3. Define Users & Groups

Users and groups are managed from the rolloutMan app under the Configuration section. 
There are two ways of adding a user for a Hosted application (shared hosted - or - private cloud hosted):
  • Adding a Local User to rolloutMan
  • Adding a User from LDAP / AD to rolloutMan
SSO is not available for the hosted rolloutMan application with Organization's AD / LDAP. This feature is only available for On-Prem applications. Please contact us for more information on this feature.
Once a user is added to the system, the user is assigned a role.
 
Choose from either of - Admin, SysAdmin, User or Planner roles.
