Missing permissions to initialize project area


Florian Georg (19031918) | asked Jan 16 '08, 6:12 a.m.
I installed the server and team concert client as described in the quick start guide.

However, when I try to create a new Project Area, I get an error about missing permissions - even when logging in as ADMIN.

Problem
You don't have permission to Save Project Area .

Reason
In order to carry out this operation, you would need permission to perform the following additional actions:
Action: Id:
Modify project area properties modify/other



Perhaps my project area description is not complete?

Any ideas?

regards,
Florian

In beta2, you are required to have process permissions to initialize a
project area, even as ADMIN:

<process-specification>
<project-configuration>
<permissions>
<role id="default">
<project-operation
id="com.ibm.team.process.server.saveProjectArea">
<action id="any"/>
</project-operation>
</role>
</permissions>
</project-configuration>
</process-specification>

In M5D1, project area initialization is changed such that you *only*
need the JazzAdmin repository permission (which the ADMIN user has).

See "21360: Permission problems during project area initialization" for
more details:
