Stash comes with an internal user directory already built-in that is enabled by default at installation. When you create the first administrator during the setup procedure, that administrator's username and other details are stored in the internal directory.
Stash Admins and Sys Admins can manage users and groups in Stash as described on this page. You can also set up Stash to use external user directories.
On this page:
In the administration area, click Users (under 'Accounts') and then Create user (on the 'Users' screen)
Complete the form. You can either set the user's password now, or have Stash email the user with a link that they can use to set the password themselves:
Once you've created the user, click Change permissions to set up their access permissions. Note that a user doesn't have access to Stash until global access permissions have been set.
See Global permissions for more information.
In the administration area, click Groups (under 'Accounts') and then Create group. Enter the name for the new group, and click Create group (again):
Now you can add users to your new group (see the next section).
You can add users to groups in two ways:
To add a user to a group from the user's account page, click Users in the Administration section, and then use the filter to find the user:
On the account page for the user, use the filter to find a group to which you want to add the user:
Click Add for each group in turn.
To add a user to a group from the group's page, click Groups (under "Accounts') in the administration area, and use the filter to find the group:
On the page for the group, use the filter to find a user whom you wish to add to the group:
Click Add for each user you select, to make them a member of the group.
You can change the username for a user account that is hosted in Stash's internal user directory. Go to Users in the Administration section, and use the filter to find the user. On the account page for the user, click Rename.
You can delete a user or group from Stash's internal user directory, or the external directory from which Stash sources users, such as an LDAP, Crowd or JIRA server.
When a user or group is deleted from such a directory, Stash checks to see if that user still exists in another directory:
