Granting administration rights to a user
Follow this process if you store the user's data in Bamboo. If the user data is stored in an external user directory like Crowd or LDAP, go to that directory to perform this action.
In Bamboo, there are two types of administrators:
- Global administrators — that is, people with the 'Admin' global permission. These people can access the Bamboo Administration menu. They can also administer every plan.
- Plan administrators — that is, people with the 'Admin' and 'Edit' plan permissions. These people can administer a particular plan.
Grant global administration rights
To grant global administration rights to a user:
Grant plan administration rights
- Either grant the 'Admin' and 'Edit' plan permissions to the user explicitly (as described in Granting plan permissions in bulk);
- Add the user to a group which has the 'Admin' and 'Edit' plan permissions (as described in Changing group members).
