Easy Service Endpoints ACL management in VSTS

It is amazing how quickly VSTS changes and evolves – of course you need to keep up with it as well Smile

This is todays discovery – the new Service Endpoint’s ACL management UI. In the past Service Endpoints were shown pretty much just as a key-value field with an URL, in reality they have two security groups behind the scenes:

  • Endpoint Administrators
  • Endpoint Creators

You knew that (didn’t you?), but managing the ACL per-endpoint wasn’t as straightforward as it is today.

The Roles tab in each Endpoint now has a much clearer view of the users’ assignments:


And adding an user is a much better experience now – with an immediate explanation of the role and the associated permissions:


What really strikes me here is the possibility of having the Access inheritance shown immediately – this is a very welcome change for me Smile
