How to Use 1Password to Protect Your Site + Connect RebelMouse to Google Analytics and Search Console

1Password is RebelMouse's preferred method to securely store and transfer login credentials. Fundamental to understanding 1Password is the concept of "vaults." RebelMouse will create a new vault for your company. In this vault, you will not only find the passwords we want you to have access to, but you'll also use your vault to add credentials you want to share with/transfer to RebelMouse. This way, anytime you need to share a password with us, you can add it to your company vault and vice versa.


To begin, you'll receive an email from your account manager inviting you into our 1Password system. You can ask for invitations for several users on your side if you wish. Follow the instructions provided by your account manager to set up your account. It's important to note that you should write down your master password in a secure location as this will be important to have for future logins.

How to Set up 1Password

You can use 1Password entirely in your browser if you wish. The directions will be the same. If you don't want to use your browser to access 1Password, here's how to download and install 1Password's app:

  1. Click on your name in the upper right-hand corner of your 1Password account.
  2. Select Get the Apps.
  3. Choose the appropriate download for your system.
  4. Install the downloaded file, and follow the instruction prompts to complete the setup process.

Adding Details and Passwords to 1Password

Click on [Your Company Vault] to access the system. This is where you'll see all of the project's relevant credentials stored. This is also where you'll add your own credentials if necessary.

To add a new entry, click the + button on the bottom (or top) of the screen.

A pop-up window will appear with many different options for the types of things you can store, including logins, passwords, and secure notes.

Typically, you will select Login. You can now enter the relevant information into 1Password. The most relevant will be username, password, website (URL of where you log in), and, if applicable, notes.

You can now view, add, edit, or delete credentials in your company vault. Please keep in mind that we only give temporary access to vaults during the time frame in which we need to share credentials with each other.

How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Google Analytics Account

Sign in to your Google Analytics account. Click the gear icon in the bottom left-hand corner, and then make sure you're in the ADMIN tab. In the account, property, or view column (depending upon whether you want to add users at the account, property, or view level), click User Management.

In the list of users, click +, and then click Add users.

Next, enter the email address for the user's Google account. (RebelMouse will inform you of which email addresses need to be added.) Select Notify new users by email to send a message to the user(s) when you're done. Finally, select the permissions you want the user(s) to have and then click Add.

How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Google Search Console Account

Owners have full control over properties in Google Search Console. They can add and remove other users, configure settings, view all data, and use all tools. If you want to give someone limited access, add them as a user instead.

How to Add an Owner

To add another user as an owner, or upgrade someone's status from user to owner, open your Webmaster Central page. Then choose a property, scroll down to the Verified owners section, and click Add an owner.

Next, add in the new owner's user information and click Continue. Finally, ask the new owner to add the property to their property list.

How to Add a New User

Choose a property in your Google Search Console account. Next, click Settings (gear icon) and then select Users and permissions. From there, click ADD USER and type in the email address of the user you want to add — RebelMouse will inform you of which email addresses need to be added — and select the permission the user should have:

  • Full: Has view rights to all data and can take some actions.
  • Restricted: Has simple view rights on most data.

Finally, click ADD. The property will be added to the new user's Google Search Console account automatically.

How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Mailchimp Account

Follow these instructions to add a user to your Mailchimp account. The various permissions and what they can do are described on Mailchimp's "Invite A User" page. The available permissions are Viewer, Author, Manager, and Admin.

First, log in to Mailchimp. Click your name in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Then, click Account. Next, click Settings, and then Users.

Next, click Invite a User.

Add in the email address of the person to be added to your account, and then choose their permission type. Finally, click Send Invite.

Publishers No Longer Have to Submit Their Site to Google News

Google's Publisher Center creates new opportunities for audience growth

Just before the start of the next decade, Google announced an important change to its Google News offering with the launch of Google Publisher Center. The new interface merges Google News Producer and Google News Publisher into one to streamline the partnership process for publishers.

Overall, the change should make it easier for publishers to manage their Google News settings, including updating themes, directing URLs to section pages, and configuring user permissions. Read the full list of features here.

How to Find Work-Life Balance as a Remote Employee

Tips from our CEO on making the most of an office-free lifestyle

Working from home is becoming increasingly popular, with an estimated 66% of companies now allowing remote work and 16% operating completely office-free. RebelMouse is one of those fully remote companies, and over the years we've mastered how to stay close to each other despite being spread across more than a dozen countries. We believe working remotely is good for both our personal lives and our productivity. Read more about this here.

Still, working free from the shackles of an office environment doesn't mean every day is a dance party in your pajamas from 9 to 5. Working from home comes with its own set of challenges just like any other job.

Inside RebelMouse’s Quality Assurance Operations

How We've Perfected Stress-Free Publishing

At RebelMouse, we like to refer to our enterprise publishing platform as "lean tech." Most publishers have a natural inclination to start doubling down on teams of developers who try to build unique experiences to help stand out above the noise. But they should actually be doing the opposite: Lean tech is the preferred way to cut through content saturation. By allowing RebelMouse to obsess over your product, content producers, editors, managers, and everyone in between can focus on creating quality content and taking advantage of opportunities to leverage distributive publishing strategies that create real revenue growth.

One of the major reasons we're able to maintain a lean tech environment is thanks to our approach to quality assurance (QA). We make updates to our platform daily to ensure our clients always have access to the most robust, high-performing, and secure version of our platform. Behind the scenes, this means having a solid QA structure that's efficient, creates less bugs, and catches the ones that do pop up before they go live. It's a system of checks and balances that's hard and costly to replicate on a custom CMS. Here's a glimpse into how it works.

Our Tech Stack Toolbox

  • Cucumber
  • Java
  • Junit
  • Maven
  • Selenium WebDriver
  • TeamCity
  • Zalenium (Selenium Grid)

Our Checks and Balances Workflow

Automated Regression Testing Cycle

The Lifecycle of a Product Update

When an update is first made to RebelMouse, TeamCity immediately triggers the start of automated tests to review integrity.

TeamCity Build

TeamCity Agent

The tests run in parallel on TeamCity's Build Agent. Next, Zalenium creates docker containers with browsers that matches the count of parallel threads. An Allure report is then generated from the test results, which shows the state of the application after the update.

Allure Report Pass

If a test doesn't complete successfully, the testing framework receives a video with a failed test and attaches it to the Allure report.

Allure Report Issue

Based on the report analysis, a QA specialist will create a "bug" ticket in our product management software to address the issue if needed. Then, information about the bug is immediately sent to the project manager and we begin the process of correcting the problem.

The media powerhouses we power can publish with confidence knowing that any product issues that arise are met with a tried-and-true process to fix the problem with little-to-no disturbance to their workflow. If you have any questions about this process, please email support@rebelmouse.com.
