Team Settings & Admin


Managing People & Roles

The My Team section of the CodeStream pane allows you to invite people via email address, and allows team admins to assign and remove admin privileges.

Admin Privileges

The "Blame Map" section allows you to define code ownership on the team. By default, when you comment on code, CodeStream mentions (or offers to email) the author(s) of the code you are commenting on. But if that person has left the company, or transitioned to a different role, it might not be the right thing to do.

Blame Map

The Blame Map allows you to direct discussions about code that the former team member worked on to someone else on the team. Based on the mapping in the screenshot above, the next time someone asks a question about code authored by Dave, or requests a review of changes to that code, Tracy will be mentioned/assigned instead of Dave.

Team Settings

If you are a team admin, look for the Team Admin menu under the headshot menu at the top of the CodeStream pane.

Onboarding Settings

Onboarding settings make it easy to get your entire team onto CodeStream, without needing to send out individual email invitations, by allowing people to join the team based on having certain repositories open in their IDE. And you don’t need to worry about teammates not signing up correctly or setting up the wrong integrations because you can control which integration and authentication options are available to them.

Onboarding Settings

The Integration Options section allows you to smooth the onboarding process process for your teammates by eliminating unnecessary unnecessary options, and of the possibility of mistakes. You can control which authentication options they can use. For example, you might want everyone to sign up using GitHub. You can also specify your team’s preferred code host, messaging service, and issue tracker. Note that you can select multiple services in each category.

The Team Assignment section allows you to grant access to the team based on access to certain repos. The initial list is based on your repositories that CodeStream is already aware of, but you can add more simply by opening the repository in your IDE.

Here’s how the onboarding process works. Shoot a message to the team, maybe via Slack, and tell them to install the CodeStream extension in their IDE. After installing the extension, as long as they have one of the repositories you specified open in their IDE, they’ll be prompted to join your team.

Join Team

Do you work at a large enterprise, with the need for multiple CodeStream teams? Just tell the team leads to sign up and create CodeStream teams, and then configure their Onboarding Settings.

Live View Settings

Live View gives your team visibility into what everone is working on. By default, each team member can determine whether or not they want to share what they're working, but as an admin you can also force Live View on or off for everyone.

Feedback Request Assignment & Approval

Team admins can control how both feedback request assignments and approvals work for the team.

Feedback Request Settings

By default, the person requesting feedback can decide how approvals work, but you can, instead, set a default behavior for all feedback requests for the team.

  • Any reviewer can approve - Any one can approve the feedback request, regardless of how many reviewers are assigned.
  • All reviewers must approve individually - Each assigned reviewer must individually approve the feedback request before it’s considered approved.

You can also decide if and how CodeStream suggests reviewers. Round-robin will cycle through all developers on the team. Random will randomly assign the feedback request to any developer on the team. The Authorship options will suggest up to three reviewers based on the developers who wrote the lines of code impacted by the changes, as well as other developers who may have committed to the branch.
