User and Team Management

This article will show you how to manage your ShiftLeft users, such as inviting new collaborators, changing a user's roles, and how to create and manage teams.

User management features are only available to permitted accounts. Please see RBAC for more information on the roles available and the rights they grant.

ShiftLeft Users

Organization Owner

One user owns each organization in ShiftLeft. That person is flagged as the org owner, and the org owner is always assigned the super admin role.

The org owner is initially the person who created the organization after signing up with ShiftLeft, though you can change this later.

Orgs created before 13 July 2021 do not have an assigned org owner. If you created an org before that date, reach out to ShiftLeft for help assigning an owner.

Managing the Org Owner Role

To see if you're the org owner:

  1. Log in to ShiftLeft.
  2. Click the avatar in the top-right and select Account Settings.
  3. On the right side (under Organization Info), look for the Org Owner field. If you're the org owner, you'll see a message stating such.
Org Info

If you're the org owner and you would like to assign this role to somebody else:

  1. Click Reassign.
  2. Select the user you'd like to reassign as the org owner.
  3. Enter your email address to confirm the ownership change.
  4. Click Confirm to proceed.
