FlexDeploy provides automation where users can build once and deploy to many environments. By default, users can submit deployment request to all available environments and can configure Scheduled Window or Approvals to control what deployments are moving to specific environments. FlexDeploy 4.0 provides additional capability where users can control who can submit deployments to specific environments allowing users tot control deployment permission to various environments for FlexDeploy Groups.
Let’s take a look at the FD Administrators group below. As you can see, this group has access to deploy to All Environments.
In this case, I have used users defined in the FlexDeploy internal security realm, but you can use your Enterprise LDAP server to accomplish the same result.
Alternatively, you can control which FlexDeploy Groups have execute (Build/Deploy/Test) capabilities on various projects at any level in the Folder structure.
Using FlexDeploy’s role-based security model, you can ensure that users have the appropriate level of access for their responsibilities. These additional checks and balances help to minimize the risk of an accidental deployment wreaking havoc in your environments, and give you a controlled means for managing changes across environments
