About this task

To allow users or groups to modify and trigger a pipeline, you must assign permissions to those users and groups. When you assign users and groups the role of Release Manager, they can modify and trigger the pipeline. When you assign users and groups the role of Release Engineer, they can trigger the pipeline. For more information, see the Using vRealize Code Stream guide.

Procedure

  1. Select Administration > Users & Groups > Directory Users & Groups.
  2. Enter a user or group name in the Search box and press Enter.

    Do not use an at sign (@), backslash (\), or slash (/) in a name. You can optimize your search by typing the entire user or group name in the form user@domain.

  3. Click the name of the user or group to which you want to assign roles.
