Welcome Groups, farewell Teams and Roles

We simplified the Runops authorization mechanism!

Now, instead of controlling access to Targets using roles, and reviews with teams, you use only one property: groups.

Plus, we added the capability of controlling access to templates using groups.

What are groups?#

Groups are a simple concept to grasp and will enable us to add even more powerful features in the future. In a nutshell, you add users to one or more groups. Groups can map to your teams, squads, locations, anything you want. With these groups, you then manage access to Target, Reviews, Templates, and more. It's a very light and easy to use RBAC mechanism.

What do you have to do?#

Nothing. We migrated all your teams and roles to the groups property.

You don't have to do anything.

Just use groups the same way you used teams and roles from now on.

What about Roles and Teams?#

The fields team and 'roles` of the user are still there. They are now only metadata about the user to help identify the user in the Slack review card. These fields won't be use for decisions anymore.

When does this ship?#

We are rolling out this feature over the next couple days. We have been using it for a few weeks and it's amazing! Your organization should get it soon.
