When you create or edit a pipeline, you can give permissions to users and groups so that they can modify and trigger the pipeline. The access permissions apply only to the users and groups that you add to the permissions lists.

About this task

By default, all Release Managers can create a pipeline. When you add a group to the list of Release Managers or Release Engineers, all users in that group can modify or trigger the pipeline. When you do not add any users or groups, the following permissions are available by default:

  • All vRealize Code Stream Release Managers can modify and trigger the pipeline.

  • All vRealize Code Stream Release Engineers can trigger the pipeline.

  • A user who has the Release Manager or Release Engineer role and Tenant Administrator role has implicit access to modify and trigger pipeline templates even when not explicitly added to the permissions list.

Procedure

  1. In vRealize Automation, click Code Stream > Pipelines.
  2. To add or edit a pipeline so that you can apply permissions to it, either click Add, or select a pipeline and click Edit to modify it.
  3. To add permissions to the pipeline, enter the names of users or groups in the Permissions area.
    1. In the Release Managers area, enter users or groups who can modify and trigger a pipeline.
    2. In the Release Engineers area, enter users or groups who can trigger a pipeline.
      Caution:

      A user who creates a pipeline can lose control of that pipeline. For example, if User 1 creates a pipeline, and only adds User 2 to the Release Manager permissions list, User 1 loses control on the pipeline being created. To retain access permission on the pipeline, User 1 must add their own user ID and group to the permissions list.

  4. On the taskbar, click Administration > Users & Groups > Directory Users and Groups.
  5. Search for the user.
  6. In the list of users, click the user name.
  7. On the User Details page, on the General tab, scroll the list of roles to add the user.
    1. To give the user permissions to modify and trigger a pipeline, select the Release Manager check box.
    2. To give the user permissions to trigger a pipeline, select the Release Engineer check box.

Results

You have assigned permissions to users and groups to modify and trigger a pipeline.
