Within Falcon Deploy, we bring together users working on a particular project – forming a team which consists of users with different roles within the organization. A team can consist of developers, business analysts, quality analysts, scrum masters, project managers, team managers, and anybody who is related to a particular project. The intent is to manage people and permissions as a unit rather than managing at an individual level. A team can receive a role grant that everyone in the team inherits automatically.

Imagine a large team that works on a particular project and needs access to an application repository. It is laborious to grant privileges individually. Instead, an Admin can create a Role, grant the privilege on the Application repository to the Role and grant the Role to the Team. Everyone in the Team gets the privilege to add/edit files in the repository. When a new user gets added to a Team, he/she automatically obtain these privileges. When someone moves or changes to a different project, the Team Admin can remove the user from the Team, and the person no longer retains those privileges.
