Manage Standard Artifact Types

A Standard Artifact Type is an artifact classification in Blueprint. By default, Standard Artifact Types are associated with all projects in the instance. For this reason, Standard Artifact Types can aid administrators in creating a more consistent experience across their instance, and remove redundancies between projects.

To view Standard Artifact Types in the Administration Portal, users must have the "View Standard Properties and Standard Artifact Types" privilege in their Instance Administration role. For more information on Instance Administrator Roles, see the Manage Instance Administration Roles article.
