Welcome to Perfecto's Public Cloud! This article helps you get started. It walks you through the process of logging in, opening a device, and adding users, org groups, and roles.

Groups are useful for organizing users within Perfecto, for example by manager, project, or other criteria that work well for your team. Groups do not impact a user's access privileges within Perfecto. Those are controlled by roles.

Roles allow an administrator to determine the level of access a team member has within Perfecto. The roles available to your team are determined by the Public Cloud Package you have purchased. Standard roles might include:

  • Administrator: The Lab Admin with full privileges for your Perfecto Public Cloud. This would be a good role for the team lead or manager that is responsible for overall access to the Perfecto Public Cloud environment
  • Handset Viewer: A typical Perfecto user. This role allows a user to perform manual tests, view and stop executions, and view reports.

For more detailed information on these administrative tasks, see Manage users. For more information on manual testing on devices in the cloud, see Manual testing.
