You must be a member of the JazzAdmins group to change repository workspace owners.

About this task

Only the owner of a repository workspace can make changes in it. You can transfer ownership of any workspace you own to any other user in your team area. (A repository administrator can transfer ownership of any repository workspace.)

    The Owner field displays the owner of the workspace.
    Tip: To search for any repository workspace name, in the Team Artifacts view, right-click My Source Control > All Repository Workspaces; then click Search for Repository Workspaces. On the Search for workspaces page, complete the fields and click Search.
  2. Click Browse to browse for other users in your team area to whom you can assign ownership of the workspace.
  3. Click the user who you want to be the new owner of the workspace, then click Select and click OK.
  4. Click Save to save your changes.


The selected user is the new owner of the workspace.
