Managing the Applications Lifecycle

 

OutSystems

Create an IT Team

Teams allow you to manage the permissions of a large number of IT users over the applications in your factory. This way, when new hires join an existing team in the company, you can manage their permissions over the team’s applications without having to grant permissions on each application individually.

Create a new team

To create a team, do the following:

  1. In your LifeTime console (https://<lifetime_env>/lifetime), go to the USER MANAGEMENT area.

  2. Choose TEAMS and click the New Team link.

  3. Fill in the team’s Name and Description.

  4. Click the CREATE button to create the team.

Now that the team is created, add users and applications to the team. You can also create new applications in the team.

Add IT users to the team

Adding users to a team will grant them a set of permissions over the team’s applications. As permissions are configured in roles, and you can assign different roles to each user within a team, you are able to have users with different permissions in the same team.

When you assign a role to a user in a team, that role overrides the default role of the user over the team’s applications. Check the OutSystems permission model for IT users to better understand which role should you grant your IT users by default and through a team.

To add a user to a team, do the following:

  1. In the USER MANAGEMENT area, choose TEAMS.

  2. Find the team you want from the list of teams and click the team’s Name to go to the details page.

  3. Click the Add Users link.

  4. Choose one or more users to add to the team and specify the role those users will have within the team.

  5. Repeat the previous step for the remaining users in the team.

To remove a user from the team, click the remove icon for that user in the team’s screen:

Add applications to the team

Adding applications to a team allows you to grant the permissions over a set of applications to all users in the team, without having to grant permissions on each application individually.

To add an application to a team, do the following:

  1. In the USER MANAGEMENT area, choose TEAMS.

  2. Find the team you want from the list of teams and click the team’s Name to go to the details page.

  3. Click the Add Application link.

  4. Choose the applications that users in this team will have access to. Notice that you will see only the applications that are not part of a team yet, as one application can only be part of a single team.

  5. Click the Add Applications to Team button.

To remove an application from the team, click the remove icon for that application in the team’s screen:

Create a new application in the team

Creating a new application directly in the team automatically grants the users in the team with permissions over that application.

To create a new application in a team, do the following:

  1. In the USER MANAGEMENT area, choose TEAMS.

  2. Find the team you want from the list of teams and click the team’s Name to go to the details page.

  3. Click the Create Application link.

  4. Fill in the application details and click the Create app button.

The IT users having Change and Deploy Applications permission level for the team now can use Service Studio to create modules in the new application.
