Hudson Teams White Paper
The Hudson Teams feature allows a single Hudson server to behave like multiple Hudson servers, each serving a project team within a single organization. By default, only jobs in a given team are visible to members of that team. In addition, unlike multiple servers, job visibility across teams can be configured.
The Team feature is orthogonal to the configured Security Realm. It honors roles assigned to users and in many ways simplifies the administration of team-aware permissions.
There are three categories of team users (which may be specific users or roles assigned to users via the security realm):
A system administrator can manage Hudson, create and delete teams, move jobs from team to team, and administer team privileges. In particular, a system administrator can delegate team administration responsibilities to team administrators.
A team administrator can add new members to the team, including administrator members, and assign them job create, delete, configure and build privileges, separately. A user can be an administrator of multiple teams; in that case, the user can move jobs from team to team.
A team member can perform the actions granted by a system or team administrator. A user can be a member of multiple teams.
