Project settings are accessible by clicking Project settings from any page that appears in the secondary navigation menu after selecting a project from the Projects module library.
It includes the following non-versioned and editable features:
- 1 - Name
Names are mandatory, with a maximum of 255 characters, and unique within a project.
- 2 - Description
Descriptions are optional and have no restrictions, but it’s a good practice to add them and keep them short and informative.
- 3 - Job Technologies
It includes embedded and external job technologies, which can be specified for the selected project.
If a technology is not selected in the project settings, it will not be available in the project. In addition, if a technology is used by a job in your project, it cannot be removed from the technologies available in the project.
For more information about jobs, see About Jobs.
- 4 - App Technologies
App technologies can be specified for the selected project.
If a technology is not selected in the project settings, it will not be available in the project. In addition, if an app is used in your project, it cannot be removed from the technologies available in the project.
For more information about apps, see About Apps
Click the information icon to view a description and the available contexts of a technology.
|The job and app technologies available to choose for your projects are determined by the Technology Catalog.|
- 5 - Authorizations
Groups can be added with a role to access only the selected project:
Table 1. Access Role Table Roles Description
Has read access to the project.
Has read and edit access (example: edit jobs) to the project.
Has read and edit access (example: edit jobs) to the project, can delete it and modify its settings and configuration (example: run type, versions).
You can specify access rights for groups of users only.
Some groups have access to all projects of the platform; you can manage those rights in the Security module.
At the bottom of the primary navigation panel is a Delete project button. You may or may not be able to delete a project depending on your authorizations for that project.
Environment variables are listed with some basic information, such as the name, description, and application level.
At the project level, the Environment Variables page gives you access to the environment variables defined for the selected project but also to the global environment variables. However, you can only create and edit environment variables for the project.
To view the information of an environment variable, click it.
A panel opens with the information that you can also edit.
When viewing the details of a global environment variable in a project, you can choose to override it for this project only by clicking Override in this project.
To access this page click.
As a reminder, environment variables can be created at the platform or project level.
For more information, see the Environment Variables page of the platform.
- What are Docker credentials?
Docker credentials are login information stored in projects to allow you to pull Docker images from private registries when creating apps.
Docker images are project specific and can only be used in the project they are added to. The same Docker credentials can be added to multiple projects.
Docker credentials are listed with little information, such as the credential type, name, and date the credentials were added. Click a credential to view more details, such as the credential type, your username and password, the connection status, whether your credentials are used or not, and the date they were added to your project.
|If your credentials have been used, a searchable list of jobs and apps that use them is displayed.|
- What is an external connection?
An external connection is a connection parameter specific to an external technology provider, used when creating external jobs in projects. It includes at least the remote host information and authentication requirements used to connect to the external job technology.
External connections are listed with some basic information, such as the name, connection type, related jobs, and creation date.
You can create new external connections by clicking Add connection and fill in the required information.
To view more information about an external connection, click it. A panel opens with the information that you can also edit.
