Upsource 3.5 Help

Roles and permissions

A role is a set of permissions. Roles are assigned to users or groups on a per-project basis. User accounts inherit roles based on their membership in a group, but also can have roles that are assigned directly.

Upsource comes with a set of the following predefined roles:

  • System admin

  • Project admin

  • Developer

  • Observer

  • Code viewer

This Upsource-specfic set is imported to Hub to complement its own default roles.

If you want to create a custom set of permissions that are available to a group or user account, you can create new roles or edit predefined roles.

To view, edit, or create roles:

  1. Click the settings icon Settings on the top right of the screen. The Administration view will open.
  2. Click Roles. The Roles view will be displayed.
  3. Click on a role to see the permissions it includes (under the Permissions tab).
  4. You can customize a role by adding or removing permissions.
