The HCL Accelerate security model is organization- and team-based. The organization is the base element; teams belong to organizations. Team members manage releases, events, and deployments. Administrators manage teams and assign users to them.

The team-based security model means that teams manage releases, reports, pipelines, events, and run deployments. Only team members can create or modify team-managed objects. Users can be assigned to more than one team. Users are identified by email address. The administrator manages the security system and manages teams and users.

After HCL Accelerate is integrated with HCL Launch, HCL Launch teams and applications can be imported into HCL Accelerate. When a team is imported, all team members are imported. Users are identified by email address. Administrators can also create users.
