Environment Teams and Roles¶
Administrators can manage team members and roles in each project environment using the DXP Cloud Console. Each environment can have unique members, and each member can have different roles in different environments.
Invite members and assign roles with varying access levels to achieve your desired team structure in each project environment.
Inviting Team Members¶
Follow these steps to invite users to your environment:
Navigate to a project environment.
Click on Team in the environment menu.
Enter the user’s email into the Email field.
Click the drop-down Role menu to assign a role to the new user.
Click on Send Invite.
Email invitations grant users access to a single project environment. Invited users must open the invitation email and click Accept Invite.
New DXP Cloud users must create an account, while returning users can Log in using their DXP Cloud credentials.
Managing Team Members¶
Current and invited team members appear in separate tabs of the Members section. Here administrators can manage team members via the Actions button in each tab.
From the Invited tab, administrators can cancel pending environment invitations.
From the Current tab, administrators can change team member roles or remove a member from the environment.
Understanding Team Roles¶
Roles determine a user’s access level within an environment. Liferay DXP Cloud comes with three default user roles: Admin, Contributor, and Guest.
Admin: Administrators have full control over the DXP Cloud environment and its members. The following permissions belong exclusively to administrators:
Enable/disable auto scaling
Manually downscale a service
Restore from a backup
Change user roles
Invite members to the environment
Remove members from the environment
Enable/disable support access
Delete a service
Contributor: Contributors can handle application management and most of the development life cycle, but can’t manage team members or perform other Admin-exclusive actions. Contributors have the following permissions:
Start a backup
Change VPN settings
Restart a service
Deploy a build
Remove themselves from the environment
Guest: Guests have view-only access. Guests can see what is happening in the environment, but can’t perform actions or make any changes. They only have permission to remove themselves from the environment.
