Users and security groups

A security group controls what the group users can view and perform in ValueEdge Strategy.

Predefined security groups

ValueEdge Strategy includes these predefined security groups: SPM User and SPM Admin. Users are added to different security groups based on the roles and licenses they are assigned in ValueEdge. For details on user management, see Manage space users in the ALM Octane Help Center.

Security groups and their related accesses and actions allowed in ValueEdge Strategy are predefined; they cannot be modified.

The following table explains the mapping between security group, role/license, and what users of each security group can do.
