YouTrack InCloud 2017.4 Help

Update YouTrack Profiles

As an administrator, you have access to the YouTrack profile for every registered user in YouTrack. To open the YouTrack profile for a specific user, select a Login in the Users list, then click the YouTrack link in the Connected Profiles pane.

The Profile page contains three tabs that let users customize their YouTrack experience. The following settings and features are available:

TabDescription
GeneralLets users view the attributes that are stored in their Hub account and set their personal preferences for YouTrack.
Tags and Saved SearchesLets users manage and share their tags and saved searches. Users can also view tags and saved searches that have been shared with them.
NotificationsLets users manage their personal notification scheme to receive important updates from YouTrack over email or Jabber.

Generally, users will want to manage their own preferences, especially their notification scheme. However, there are situations where an administrator needs to step in and clean up unused tags and saved searches or help a new user configure their notifications. As an administrator, you have access to the following actions:

  • Update the preferences on the General tab. Here, you might need to overwrite the user's time zone setting if set incorrectly.

  • Update or delete tags and saved searches on the Tags and Saved Searches tab. When you have permission to update profiles for other users, you can modify these settings even when you are not a member of the group that is specified in the Can edit setting.

    If, for example, you need to delete an account for a user who has created a number of shared tags and saved searches that are no longer relevant, you can delete them from the account in question before you delete the user. Otherwise, you can delete them from the replacement account that assumes ownership of the tags and saved searches when you delete the original owner.

  • Configure the general notification scheme, add subscriptions, and update subscription settings on the Notifications tab. You might want to access these settings when users complain that they receive too many notifications from YouTrack. Here, you can see which options they have enabled and verify how they have set up their subscriptions.
