About Deployment Authorisation
For docker stacks where you want additional control over deployment authorizations, you can now go to the stack settings page an choose a deployment lockdown strategy. There are currently three deployment strategies available:
- No Deployment Lockdown: This is the default behaviour and means that deployments will go through without any additional approval.
- Anyone on your team: This setting implies that deployments will only happen if at least two members on your project with deploy permissions agree to deploy your stack. This is commonly known as four-eyes authorization.
- Specific team members: This setting implies that only a specific user (or users in this group) will have permissions to approve depoyment requests.
If a deployment lockdown strategy is in place, then the “Deploy” button will be replaced with a “Request Deploy” button. Users with approval rights can then go to the stack’s Deployment Timeline on the “Build & Deployment right navigation option”. There they can approve or deny deployment requests. Note that the person who raised the request can also cancel that request here.
Once a deployment request is approved, the deployment will take place. The audit log and deployment history pages will list who raised the deployment request and who approved it.
IMPORTANTAt this time, this setting applies to Docker stacks only.
For larger organisations with multiple cloud keys and multiple departments requiring access to different cloud keys, we now allow deployment “targets” to be locked down at a user permission level for all users in your team.
From the Account -> Teams menu, you can edit permissions for any user; specifically now you can “Restrict deployment targets” to a list of deployment targets (including “Registered Servers”)
