Manage Project Groups

Project Groups are a set of users that can be assigned a particular Project Role, offering another mechanism project administrators can use to control access to a project.

To view Project Groups in the Project Administration Portal, users must have either

a) the "View Groups, Project Roles, and Project Role Assignments" privilege in their Project Administrator Role, or

b) the "Administer All Projects" privilege in their Instance Administrator Role.

For more information on Project Administrator Roles, see the Manage Project Administrator Roles article. For more information on Instance Administrator Roles, see the Manage Instance Administrator Roles article.

To access and manage Project Groups:

  1. In the Administration Portal, click Projects and select the project where you want to manage Project Groups.
    For information on how to access the Admin Portal, see the About the Administration Portal article.
  2. Under Projects, click User Management and select Project Groups.
  3. The page displayed lists all the Project Groups for that project. Click a group in the Name column to see its details.
    You can also sort the list by clicking any column header (with the exception of the Description column) to display each column in alphabetical or reverse alphabetical order.
  4. The group's details page provides all the information for that Project Group including:
    1. The Group Email indicating the email address acting as a distribution list for all group members.
    2. The Group Type. Project-level Groups will always have an Access group type by default. For more information on group types, see the About Groups article.
