Administering components in the QM application

In projects that are enabled for configuration management, as a team member with configuration management permissions, you can complete the tasks that are related to managing components for your project.

Before you begin

  • A Quality Management (QM) project area administrator must enable configuration management for the project.
  • You must be assigned the Configuration Lead role or have permission to manage components. On the Permissions page in the application administration section, see the Configuration Management group for the permissions related to managing components. Assign permissions based on the tasks that you must complete.

About this task

You can create team areas to grant users specific sets of permissions for the components in a project. For example, you might create a team area whose members can create components, but cannot modify them or the configurations of the component. See the related topics for details.
