Continuous Testing Server with Functional UI test execution in parallel

Version 1.2.5

All Platforms

Administration

Access Control

BuildWise server adopts standard user access control: role based authorization.

  • Admin - super user: manage preferences, users, suspend/hide/delete build projects, upgrade, …, etc.
  • Builder - Trigger a build, view project setting
  • Member - Can view project build history, test scripts
  • Anonymous - only view project build reports (if the project set publicly visible)

Except Admin, roles are based on projects, i.e., a user have Builder role on Project A cannot trigger a build for Project B. The default login is “admin” with password “buildwise” (after installation), then set up other users.
