About Firefly teams

In Firefly, the concept of teams is an extension of the teams feature in TLS Protect Cloud, so for extensive details on the teams features, you might want to read that documentation.

In Firefly we use teams in connection with service accounts. A service account has to belong to a team. The point of service accounts is to ensure the identities are valid regardless of team membership.

You create a team before you can create a service account.

The Teams inventory shows you a list of all TLS Protect Cloud (including Firefly) teams created by members of your organization.

For Firefly, we will focus on creating a new team. If you want more details, you can read the TLS Protect Cloud teams documentation.

Create a new team

  1. From the menu, click Teams > New.
  2. Give the Team a name.
  3. Use the search box to select one or more team Owners who can manage the team.
  4. Use the search box to select one or more team Members who can see the team and can, because of group membership, inherit the roles assigned to the team, then click Next.
  5. Select a Role.
    • If this team is only for Firefly, you can use any role.
    • If this team is for broader use in TLS Protect Cloud, you'll want to check out our documentation on roles.
  6. (Optional) If your team uses SSO, you can specify membership rules to automatically organize your users into teams. Review Team membership rule operators for details on how to construct good rules.
  7. Click Save.

What's next

Now that you have a team, you're ready to create a service account, which will allow the Firefly server to authenticate to the Venafi Control Plane.
