Assigning administrative privileges

You can also designate the user as an administrator in a project area or a team area. The administrative control also applies to all sub-team areas that are located within the project area or team area where it is assigned. Administrators have administrative privileges outside of the permissions defined by the process. They can modify the process configuration, team membership, and user information including Work Environment information. If users do not have the permissions they need, they should contact an administrator.

Before you begin

You must belong to either the JazzAdmins or JazzProjectAdmins repository group.
