Below are several of the questions we received during the webinar Q&A:
Q: How do you admin the groups? Manually or is this there LDAP involved?
A: You can decide if you want to create internal Jenkins users/groups or import users and groups from your LDAP server. In this case you can use the LDAP Jenkins plugin to import them but you still need to manage them manually using Jenkins. Each external group has to match an internal Jenkins group so that you can assign a role to it. Roles are defined in Jenkins regardless the origin of users and groups (internal or external).
- Jenkins itself
- Maven modules
Such an open setup would allow users with overall permissions to see information that you might rather restrict from them - like access to any secret projects, workspaces, credentials or scripts.
Overall configure permissions would also allow users to modify any setting on the Jenkins master.
