Assign roles to a user group

Enable multiple users to do something all at once by giving their group a role.

A user group can have any number of roles. Each member of the user group has all the access permissions allowed by all of the assigned roles, plus any permissions that may have been assigned by other methods, such as application permissions or individually assigned roles.

Roles and the associated permissions can be inherited. If your project is a subproject of any other project, you may have inherited some roles or user groups. You can assign any inherited role to any user group.

  1. Click PROJECT ADMIN from the Project Home menu.
  2. On the Project Admin menu, click Permissions, then click the Group-Role Matrix tab. Observe the user groups listed on the left and all the available roles (global, direct and inherited) on the right.
    Note: User groups can be assigned global, direct and inherited roles. The inherited user groups have all the permissions that they have in the parent project.
    • If you assign another inherited role to an inherited group, the members of that group get both the roles.
    • If you assign a role to a user group in a project, that user group becomes a direct user group in that project.
  3. Select the roles you want for each user group and click Save.
    Restriction: When you give a group access to a CVS or Wandisco Subversion repository, members of the group can view the repository but cannot do repository actions, such as commit and update. You must assign those permissions to users individually.
The roles are now assigned to each user group.
