Manage your team

Make architecture reviews a team effort, share your real-time cloud infrastructure views, or collaboratively design your next project with the help of Cloudcraft teams.

Adding people to a team in Cloudcraft is easy, and allows everyone to collaborate in real-time.

The account owner and team members with the admin role can invite and remove users, as well as change member's roles.

Team features are available with Cloudcraft Pro and Enterprise plans.

User management

Invite new users

To add members to your team, head to User → Team settings inside Cloudcraft.

Next, click the blue Add member button at the bottom of the Manage Team window that appeared.

Add member button

After clicking the button, you need to enter the user's email address and select a role for them on your team.

Add an user to your team

Selecting the correct role is a critical step in this process, as different roles have different levels of access. Select the role that best fits this user, but try to follow the principle of least privilege.

Lastly, click the Send invite button to invite the user to your team. The user you invited will receive an email that includes a link to join your team and set up their account if they have not already.

The user will inherit their cross-organizational role if they are a member of a cross-organizational team.

Remove existing users

When someone leaves the team — or if someone is added by mistake — you will want to remove them from your team. For that, head to User → Team settings inside Cloudcraft.

Next, select the user you want to have removed and click the gray trash can icon to the right of their name.

Trash can icon

A confirmation dialog will appear on your screen. Click the red Remove button and the user will be removed from your team.

Diagrams that were created by the removed user and that were shared with the team, will continue to be available to the team. If you need help migrating all of the user's data prior to removing them, please contact our support team from inside the application.

Team access to data of removed users can also be restored if requested within our 30-day data retention period.

Change an existing user's role

If you need to change what a user has access to, head to User → Team settings inside Cloudcraft.

Next, click the gray pencil icon to the left of the user.

Team management

The multi-team management feature is only available for the Enterprise plan

Create a new team

To create a new team for your account, head to User → Team settings inside Cloudcraft.

Next, you need to give your team a name and set its visibility. A Visible team can be seen by anyone in your organization, while a Secret team can only be seen by the account owner and members of the team.

Select the settings for the new team

Before creating the team, you can also check the Cross-organizational box to make this a cross-organizational team, which are teams with members that are automatically added to all other teams in your organization. An example of cross-organizational team woul be a central security management team, which need visibility into all of the individual teams.

Unless they are already a member of another team, cross-organizational members inherit their cross-organizational roles.
