Central teams are pre-defined teams with default users in a runbook that can be copied or linked when creating a runbook team. In this article, we'll cover what central teams are, and how to create and manage them.
Central teams overview
Central teams are pre-defined teams with default users in a runbook that can be copied or linked when creating a runbook team and are created at the workspace level.
Central teams are used when you have teams that need to be assigned to multiple runbooks. By creating a central team and adding users, you can copy or link any central team to a specific runbook without having to recreate a new team each time. You can read more about creating runbook teams and linked teams here.
Create a central team
To create a central team, be sure that you have one of the below user roles:
Central team manager
Workspace runbook creator
Folder runbook creator
Navigate to and select a workspace in your Cutover instance. Next, follow the steps below:
Click Central Teams.
Next, click the + icon on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
Create an Individual team or Bulk upload a team.
If you select Individual team, enter the names of the users you would like to add to your team. Click +Add when complete.
If you select Bulk upload, you will need to upload a .CSV file containing the email addresses and the assigned team of the users you wish to add to your central team. Click Upload.
Manage a central team
Click on a central team in the Central Teams menu to edit the team name and remove/add users.
