Vendors who can submit automatic firmware updates are in a privileged position where files can be installed on end-user systems without authentication. This means we have to do careful checks on new requests, which may take a few days to complete.
Three classes of user can be created for your organisation on the LVFS:
We can create as many different users of each type as required, and each can have a different password. Some vendors just need one 'QA User' as the person uploading the firmware is also the person who decides when to move the update from testing to stable.
