"Clone From A Component" in DNG - what permissions enable this capability?

I'm trying to work with my business partner to clone artifacts from one component to another in a DNG project (which is also included in a Global Configuration)

We are on DNG v6.0.6 iFix003
We are working in a Change Set
I have the ability to see the option to Clone From A Component, however my business partner does not.

My permissions:
Members: Administrator, Configuration Administrator, Author
Administrators: <listed here>
Repository Permissions: JazzAdmins

Partner's permissions:
Members: Administrator, Configuration Administrator, Author
Administrators: <not listed>
Repository Permissions: JazzUsers

I have reviewed the Jazz Help files and did not find any mention of permissions.
I have reviewed the available permissions in the DNG Project Management UI and I cannot find mention of "Clone From A Component"

Can someone please share what permissions are required for this action? Can you also commit to document it in the Jazz Help and/or list of permissions for future releases?

In order to "Clone from a Component", you need to be member of the Administrators list of the target Project Area. This constraint was implemented as fix of Defect 109877: Restricting "Clone from Project" to JazzAdmin and JazzProjectAdmin is too restrictive.

The documentation is not clear here, I found this out by searching and testing. It might even be wrong, as it refers to an Administrator role.

Hi Greg,
I wonder if you reviewed this reference in the IBM Knowledge Center about Cloning requirement artifacts.
There in its "Before you begin"-section it briefly describes what are the required conditions to perform such clone from component.

Thank you for the response Javier - I don't believe that this linked article tells the whole story. It says that you need to be assigned the "Administrator Role" ... but which Administrator?

As a project Members with the Administrator Role?
Or Administrator role on the project.
(can't post screenshot)

We are finding it's the latter of the two, but I cannot find the full list of permissions that come with that Administrator Role on the project.
