Does anyone know if there's a system variable in Build Forge that contains the access group of a particular project?? I searched through the documentation and i can't find it.

There is no variable in Build Forge that contains access group information. When you assign access groups to projects and related permissions. The data is stored in the database. You can check the bf_level table. This holds access group and related information. You will see a bf_id column which is for all purposes unused. But this table relates to other tables such as bf_assgrp_assgrp and bf_assgrp_user. If you look at bf_assgrp_user, you will see 
that controls direct access group membership. Indirect access group membershitp is established by direct membership in one access group that inherits from another. Table bf_levels has bf_lvl which has the level id for the level that controls this one. Only users belonging to the control level can make changes to permissions. 

When it comes to user access and the way Build Forge is set up. It's definitely a tough one. You can always open a PMR to gain additional insight into how the permissions are structured within Build Forge.
