Granting global permissions to users or groups

Global permissions control which users and groups have access to build plans and the Bamboo server, and what actions they can perform.

Note that if you remove all permissions for a user or group, that user or group will disappear from the Permissions tab for all plans.

To change global permissions:

  1. Click the  icon in the Bamboo header and choose Overview.
  2. Click Global Permissions in the left navigation panel, and then Edit Global Permissions.
  3. You can set plan permissions for the categories of users in the table below.
  4. Select (or clear) the check box for each permission that you wish to change for a user or group.
  5. Click Save.
