You can implement access control using a set of 'built-in' users stored in the FishEye database, or you can have FishEye look in an external authentication source for users, passwords and permissions.
Note that anonymous access to FishEye is allowed by default. You can disable anonymous access at a global level and per repository.
To configure external authentication settings, click Authentication (under 'Security Settings') in the Admin area. See External user directories for more information.
To set up built-in users, choose from the pages below for specific information on settings:
- Creating a user
- Creating a group
- Adding a user to a group
- Associating a group with a repository
- Configuring avatar settings
- Configuring anonymous access
- Editing a user's details
- Deleting or deactivating a user
- Global permissions
FishEye provides a pluggable architecture to allow arbitrary forms of authorization and authentication.
