ActivityTimeline administrator can configure and manage users that have access to ActivityTimeline.
Main features on Users page:
Jira Users list
In order to view or manage the users, follow the steps:
Click Configuration icon on the toolbar
Switch to Users tab.
→ Jira Users page opens.
In Users page admin can change Default Person Involvement (default value = 8 hours). Once the new value is set and the changes are saved, workload indicator on the dashboard will be updated.
Create Non-Jira User
In order to add non-Jira user press Create User button:
In the opened Create Person page specify username, full name, email, position, skills, and role. Decide if the user will be enabled and press Create:
New non-Jira user is marked with * sign next to the Full Name.
Label 'Local User' appears next to the Enabled value in Show User page.
Create / Edit User
Create / Edit User
In Create / Edit Persondialog ActivityTimeline administrator can specify a set of User characteristics and configuration options:
1.Enabled or Disabled
if the user is enabled or disabled:
Disabled Users will not be able to access dashboard. So if Enabled option is turned off, the user will not be able to access timeline dashboard while logging in with his/her Jiracredentials.
Username and Password
This is available for administrator user only. The regular user will not be able to change the username and password.
Once username and password are changed for a user and the changes are saved, the system will automatically update the password if a user logs into the ActivityTimeline.
Old passwords and new passwords updated in Jira are sent at a time when a user logs into ActivityTimeline. The source is checked and updated automatically, and hence the user does not need to do the same thing in two systems.
