Chapter 1—Initial configurations

Tags: Flow

When you’re getting started with Pluralsight Flow, there are a few configurations you’ll want to set up as soon as you can. Setting these up now will ensure your data and users are imported and configured in a way that makes sense for you and your organization. If you don’t take these steps now, you’ll have to put in more time later to get everything set up correctly.

Note:  If you plan to use Flow with an internal server or behind a firewall, make sure to whitelist Flow's static IP addresses so Flow can access your Git repositories.

There are three main configurations you should set as soon as you get into Flow:

  • Enable pair programming. This allows you to better visualize contributions made by multiple users and customize how group work is credited to multiple people. By setting up this configuration now, you can make sure Flow knows how to deal with commits that are co-authored.
  • Set your default domain so you can merge users. Sometimes engineers use multiple identities to do their work, and setting your default domain before you add all your users makes it easier to merge all these identities later.
  • Set the default view rights for your organization. You can customize these more later for teams and individuals, but setting up the default view rights now ensures that the users you import into Flow will get the most accurate settings to begin with. View rights can be confusing, so check out the article about how view rights work, with some best practices for what view rights might work best for you.

What's next?

Now that you've set up these initial configurations, it's time to import your data and learn how to manage it.
