Now that we’ve configured our group, added an environment to it, and executed multiple runs, it’s time to configure self service users.
Why configure self service?
Self service accounts are a useful aspect of Runtime, as they allow you (the administrator) to configure a safe environment for testers to execute runs, while limiting their access to the templates being used.
This way, when a tester requires a refresh of their dataset, they can execute the run, and no intervention from an administrator is required, which increases overall productivity.
Adding a new user
Navigate to the ‘Users’ tab on the left side of the Runtime interface.
On the top right of this screen, click ‘Add user’.
The following screen should now appear:
Specify a username, full name, password and email address for the user.
Click ‘Save changes’
Currently, there are only two roles available: users and administrators. Users can only execute runs. Administrators have all permissions.
Now, sign out of Runtime and try logging in with the user account you’ve just created. You should see that no runs are available to execute.
Assigning applications to users
After logging into the administrator account, navigate to the environment we created earlier in this training.
Switch to the ‘Permissions’ tab.
Under ‘Self service users’ select the user you´d like to add.
Click ´Save changes´
Now, look at the public scenarios. You should see a list of all your installed applications on this environment. Marking a scenario as ´Public´ enables all users to execute it. In the example below, all users are allowed to execute Project1 with either the (Re-)Create or (Re-)Fill scenario.
