Creating access groups
You can create an access group that consists of members of project areas, team areas, and other specific users. After you create an access group, you can limit access to work items to members of that access group. Users who have JazzAdmins repository group permissions can access restricted work items even if they are not members of the access group. You can also use access groups to limit access to source control artifacts.
Before you begin
- On the Application Administration page of the web client, click the Access Groups menu. See Logging in for project administrators and team leads (web).
- Click .
- Enter a name and brief description for the access group.
In the Members section:
- To add members of a project area or team area, click , the Add a Project or Team Area icon. Select a project area, then click OK, or expand project area entries to see their team areas. Select a team area, then click OK.
- To add specific users, click , the Add a Contributor icon. Enter the name of a user to add. Select the user, then click Add or Add and Close.
Note: The members of the access group must have read access to the project area to which the work item belongs to access that work item. If a user is a member of the access group that is listed in the Restricted Access field of a work item but does not have read access to the project area, that user cannot access that work item.
- To remove a team area or user, select it, then click .
- Click Save to save the access group.
