Assign user groups to a role

To manage permissions for a lot of groups or roles at once, try assigning user groups to roles.

  1. Click PROJECT ADMIN from the Project Home menu.
  2. On the Project Admin menu, click Permissions.
  3. To display existing global, direct or inherited roles, click the Global project roles, Roles Created For a Project or Roles Inherited From Parent Project option of View.
    Note: If your project is a subproject of another project, you may have inherited some roles or user groups. The inherited role details like role name, description and the source project name are listed.
    You can assign direct user groups to a global/direct/inherited role.
  4. Click the name of the role that you want to assign to user groups.
  5. On the Role Permissions page, click the Assigned Groups tab. The Assigned Groups page shows all user groups that are currently assigned the role.
    Tip: You can assign the role only to the direct user groups of the project.
  6. Click Add.
  7. Type some of the group’s name in the Name (search) box and click Find.
  8. In the Find a user group window, select the user groups that you want to add, and click Finish.
    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 user groups are now assigned the role.
