Set-up Teams

Create and manage multiple teams within an organization account

Introduction

Teams is a way to group members on BrowserStack to reflect your organization’s structure. Creating teams is useful for organizations having multiple teams working on different products, belonging to different business units or might be geographically dispersed. We recommend creating teams that align with organization’s internal team structure (e.g. Frontend, MobileSquad, etc ).

Teams

Who can create Teams?

If you are organization Owner or Admin, you can create, delete teams and assign users to each team. Multiple members can be added in any teams with Admin or User roles.

How to create, delete or manage Teams?

  1. Visit User Management under Account.
  2. Click Manage Teams button. Modify access dialog
  3. In the Manage teams dialog, enter a Team Name. Click Add Team. Modify team
  4. A new team will be created visible in the Teams list in the dialog.
  5. You can now add users to the new team from user list.
  1. Visit User Management under Account.
  2. Under Manage Users section, find the member in the user list.
  3. Click the More actions (3 dot icon) button at the right side of the row.
  4. Select Modify access: User Management - Modify access
  5. A dialog will appear. Click the Team dropdown and select the team. Modify access dialog
  6. Click Save to save the changes.
  1. Visit User Management under Account.
  2. Click Manage Teams button. Modify access dialog
  3. In the Manage teams dialog, click delete button (next to the team to be deleted). Modify access dialog
Note: On deleting a team, the users who were part of that team will be moved to Organization.
Note: You can also make use of the REST APIs to manage users and teams.

Advanced Team management features

Once teams have been set-up for your organization, you can also make use of advanced team management features:

  1. Parallel allocation for Teams
  2. Manage data access across Teams

Parallel allocation for Teams

Parallel test execution gives you the scale you need to deliver quality at speed. Once Teams are created, organization can choose either to assign dedicated parallels (for Automate and App Automate products) to individual teams or let the Teams share from the pool of organization parallels. This helps to ensure that the parallels are distributed as per testing needs of respective Teams.

How parallel allocation for team works?

  • Suppose an Organization Acme Inc. has a total 100 parallels for Automate. There are 2 teams in this organization TeamA and TeamB.
  • The Owner allocates 25 parallels to TeamA. This means that this team can run 25 parallel tests at an instant. TeamB’s parallels are left blank.
  • As a result, there will be 75 parallels left in the Organization pool which can be shared with Organization and TeamB’s members.

How to allocate parallels to teams?

  1. In BrowserStack, click Account and then Settings & Permissions.
  2. Under Automate/App Automate section, click Manage link next to Parallel Tests. Allocate parallels to teams
  3. Add the parallels that you want to assign to any team.
  4. Team(s) for which you want the parallels to be shared with the Organization’s parallels pool, leave the parallel input field blank for them.
  5. Click Update to save the changes.

Manage data access across Teams

Manage Data Access allows organizations to control visibility of data across teams (on the product Dashboards, Test Insights, APIs etc.). Owner can either choose to provide test data access to all users across the organization or restrict users to view test data of their respective teams only by selecting the desired setting:

  1. Global access: Unrestricited data access to all users.
  2. Team access: Access restricted to respective team of user.
Role Value offering
For administrators: Get the flexibility to maintain data security. Control test-data visibility for team members to enforce compliance with internal security protocols by reducing the risk of information breaches.
For users: See what matters upfront! Get customized views across product and test insights dashboard for faster and easier access.
