Assigning Users to Projects

Users must be assigned to projects and can only access projects where they have been assigned; user access is also limited by associated permissions. A point to note here is that if a user has permissions granted at the application level, they will only require project specific permissions to elevate their permission level

You can assign users to the project in the Assign Users tab of the project:

  1. Open the project by right clicking and selecting Edit Project or by double clicking the project.
  2. Select the Assign Users tab.
  3. You can then add users by simply typing in the user name and selected from the filtered results or by using the drop down and selecting the user.

Assign User Groups to a Project

Groups of users can be assigned to projects and project permission can then be assigned to the group. Group permissions at the application level will take precedence. You can assign groups to projects similarly to adding users directly to projects.

Time Tracking

You can also set the time to be used for tracking progress for a project by selecting the Time Tracking tab.

Here you can select:

Working Hours Per Day The number of hours in a working day (1 - 24).
Working Days Per Week The number of days in a working week (1 - 7).

Version Control

You can add the following version control details for a project:

  1. Type the type of version control application you are using (selected from a supported list).
  2. Repository Url the url path for the version control repository you are configuring.
  3. Working Copy Path the working copy path for the version control repository you are configuring.
  4. Username a gateway user to access the repository.
  5. Password the password for the gateway user used to access the repository.
  6. Executable Path the path to the executable for the version control application.
  7. Additional Arguments any additional arguments required for the repository executable.

Note that you can choose to inherit Version Control from the organization. If you share version control repositories across Projects this enables you to define the connection once.
