Manage Group Access

The Access tab lets you view and manage the permissions that are available to the members of a group. Group members inherit permissions based on the roles that are assigned to the group in one or more projects.

You can also use groups to grant group members access to a project by adding the group directly to the project team. For more information, see Manage the Project Team.

View Access Permissions of a Group

The permissions granted to a user group are displayed on the Access tab of the group profile. Here, you can view which roles and permissions are assigned to the group.

Switch between three views to see the various slices of the access configuration of the account:

  • Access rights by project — view the projects where the group has access permissions.

  • Roles — view the list of roles granted to the group. Select the role to view in which project it is granted and by what means (e.g. the account is a member of the New Users group, and thus inherits the role).
