In the past, the access level of an Octopus user was determined by the selection of permissions from a list of all the permissions available. The modification of the permissions had to be done manually for each Octopus user.  From version 3.8 and beyond, we are introducing the notion of roles that will facilitate and improve the access management of Octopus and ensure the security level. Each role contains its own permissions and the Octopus users have one or more roles that automatically inherit the sum of the permissions from each role.

Octopus’ Automated Approvals Solution enables you to effectively implement the global execution process of a request when an approval is required.  This document will run you through the concepts that support this solution. It was developed in order to consider several approval modes that fulfill the organizational approval process and automize it through the Octopus request types, in this case service request, problem or change.  We have written this document to introduce the approval concepts for service requests (SR), because of the constant challenge that they represent for the IT organizations. Approvals are also available in the Problem and Change modules, but they may work differently in these contexts.
