How to Setup User Entitlements in a Team for Mobile App Security Projects

Last updated May 8, 2024 by Appdome

Learn how to start using entitlements to collaborate on mobile integration projects within an Appdome Team.

The Importance of Structured Team Roles in Mobile App Development

Development organizations invest heavily in creating mobile integration development cycles that meet their organizational needs. Project managers and DevOps team leads assign specific responsibilities to specific experts during the development cycle. This structured approach ensures that multiple people can work on the same app as a team efficiently. For instance, mobile development, security, and IT teams often collaborate to create fully integrated mobile apps for users.

Team-member entitlements enable you to limit each teammate to a specific task within the Appdome workflow. Entitlements, which are specific “right of use” rules established within teams, can be assigned to individual users for each step of the process. These steps include uploading apps, fusing one or more services, adding context, signing, or deploying the app. By confining users to particular tasks, you can prevent mistakes, such as a user responsible for signing the app accidentally fusing it, thereby streamlining mobile integrations.

This meticulous task assignment ensures that the right people are doing the right job, which accelerates the development cycle and is a fundamental part of any mobile integration process. Moreover, reliance on external integration processes could significantly impact well-oiled internal processes.
