Managing the Applications Lifecycle



Create an IT User

OutSystems allows you to manage IT Users like developers, testers, and operators.

LifeTime is the master of data for IT Users. It ensures that every user has the same credentials in all environments that are registered in LifeTime. When you register an environment in LifeTime, from that moment on you will not be able to change the accounts of IT Users in the Service Center of that environment.

When you create or update an IT User account in LifeTime, the user's credentials will be updated in LifeTime's database and that change is also propagated to every registered environment. This behavior is also enforced by LifeTime's synchronization process that runs everyday.

One of the most common tasks in operations is to create an IT User for a new developer or a new operator that will operate the platform.
