OutSystems allows you to define the permissions of IT users using a role-based permission model. This model enables you to set up the permissions of your IT users for simple to complex security policy needs, as you can:
- Set up the permissions of a small team using only the built-in default roles, Developer and Administrator.
- Create additional roles to better control the different permission levels of a larger team.
- Use teams to manage an enterprise-grade security policy, where you have many applications and users.
- Grant or revoke permissions to users for specific applications without using teams.
Manage your IT Teams in the USER MANAGEMENT area of your LifeTime console (
To manage IT teams, you must be an infrastructure manager.
