Assigning Permissions to a Project

In this Page


Org admins and Project creators can set Project permissions to limit and control user access:

  • Full access permissions allow users to Read, Write, and Execute inside the project.

  • Org admins can assign permissions to any user or group. Project owners can assign permissions to users or groups.

  • Org admins can assign permission at the Project Space level and have the same permission propagated across all Projects in the Project Space.

Propagated permissions do not display in the Permissions for individual projects.


Permission Types

As an Org admin or project owner, you can set permissions to a project or project space. The permission model has the following permission types:

  • Owner: Automatically assigned to the creator of a project or project space. Owner permissions have extra privileges; for example, the ability to modify permissions on the project or change the ownership to another user. 

  • Read and Execute: Select to give access to view and execute assets, projects, and project spaces.

  • Read Only: Select to give access to view assets, projects, and project spaces.

  • Read and Write: Select to give read and write access to assets, projects, and project spaces.

  • Full Access: Select to give permissions to view, create, modify, and execute assets, projects, and project spaces.
