Create additional site administrators

To assist in the administration of the TeamForge site, a person must have a site administrator user account with a corresponding role on that site. TeamForge administrators can create suitable site-wide roles and delegate site administration responsibilities.

Note: You can choose site administration permissions through site-wide roles.
  1. Go to My Workspace > Admin.
  2. Click Roles from the Projects menu.
  3. Click Create.
  4. On the SITE-WIDE ROLE tab, write a name and description for the role. The role name is case-sensitive.
  5. To prevent inheritance of the role into private projects, select the PREVENT ACCESS option.
    Note: Selecting the option to prevent role inheritance does not affect access to public and gated projects. On selecting Prevent access, the user may not be allowed to do project-permissions related tasks in private projects.
  6. Click Create. The restricted site administrator role is created. The Edit Site-wide Role Permissions page appears.
    Note: You can select the permissions for site administration tools as well as for applications available across all projects.
  7. Select the apt site administration and/or project permissions listed on the ROLE PERMISSIONS tab, to match the responsibility assigned to a user with that role.
    Tip: You may not want to risk delegating the task of deleting projects, users, groups, roles or categories.
    Note: If you are creating a site-wide role that has Project Tracker's "Configure - Site" permission, you must also assign the "Role - View" permission.
    Note: To manage artifact types globally, users must have project administrator permissions in a site-wide role.
The role is created. You can assign it to site members at any time.
