Advanced permission scheme for each Secrets Macro

Currently, owners of a Secret macro can only give access to others to "View" secrets

As a macro owner, I'd like to have more control on the permission shceme, such as:

  • Giving access to view macro, to certain users/groups (View permission)

  • Giving access to view AND edit content of secrets, to certain users/groups (Edit permission)

  • Giving access to view, edit, AND be able to give access to secret macros, to certain users/groups (Owners role - Admin permission)

    Hi everyone,

    We have been getting a lot of feedback from you that you would like to be able to add groups into the Owners field, but mainly with the goal of being able to give a group of users to be able to edit the content of the secret macro.

    With that in mind, we are thinking of adding another role in secrets, Editor role, on top of the currently available Viewers & Owners role, so that you can give permission to a group of users that can View & Edit secrets at the same time, while preserving the permission to update access control to owners role.

    I have updated this idea with a mockup that explains how I envision the function would work. Please check it out and do let us know what you think of it.

    Thanks!
    Monique, PM

    New update! You can now add user groups at Owner level so that it is easier for you to add the relevant owners and not lose access to the secrets.


    Feel free to drop me an email at joyce.teoh@servicerocket.com if you have any feedback or use cases that you would like to share with us.

    Greetings Service Rocketeers, Is there any chance you could implement this change request soon? There have been no updates for 13 months.

    The issue with the current software is that people with authority to edit Secrets can come and go. Each time this happens, hundreds of individual Secrets must be edited and the list of owners changed - This is not a scalable or sustainable process.

    If this idea is implemented soon, the processes around Secrets Macro will become manageable again - cheers and thanks
