Grant project permissions

Once enable by the system admin, the project admin can grant project permissions to users and groups.

An organization admin or system admin can also grant permissions at an organization or project level.

To grant project permissions:

  1. Select Admin > Project > Project Permissions.

    Image shows permissions table with column headers User/Group, Inherited, Project Admin, Read/Write, Read-only and Actions.
  2. From the Project tab, select the project, component, set, or item for which you want to grant permissions.

  3. Use the toolbar to select any of the following, as needed:

    • Click Add permissions to add a new user or group.

    • Click Modify in the row of a user or group you want to edit.

    • Click Remove in the row of any user or group for which you want to delete permissions.

    • Click Override to change the inherited permissions for this user or group.


      When a row contains the value True in the Inherited column and is highlighted in green, the group or user has inherited its permissions from a higher level. Clicking Override in the Actions column changes these inherited permissions.

  4. In the Add/Edit access window that opens, grant permissions and click Save.

    • Grant the permissions that come with the role of project admin.

    • Grant access permissions for the selected item, set, or component.

  5. (Optional) Select Remove to take away all permissions from the user or group for that project, set, or folder.
