Agile permissions schemes in Crucible
This page contains information about using and editing Agile permission schemes in Crucible.
Understanding the Agile Permissions Scheme
Agile development teams may not want to use the default Crucible permission schemes that require one person to approve or summarize reviews. Crucible ships with a pre-defined Agile permission scheme. By Agile, we mean permission schemes that have no moderator and very liberal permissions, suited to Agile or self-organizing teams.
To use the Agile permissions scheme when creating a project, simply select agile from the Permissions Scheme list on the 'Edit Project' screen.
If you began your installation of Crucible with Crucible 2.1 or later, then this permission scheme will appear in the list of permission schemes in the administration menu.
If you have upgraded from an earlier version of Crucible (pre Crucible 2.0), then the Agile permission may not appear by default. However, you can still create the equivalent by disabling the moderator when creating projects, allowing freer access to summarizing, closing and generally tending to Crucible reviews.
If you disable the moderator role on the Edit Project screen, then Crucible will check the current permission scheme. If the current permission scheme requires a moderator, a warning will be shown and you will be prompted to create a new permission scheme which will be called 'Agile' (or Agile-X if the name Agile already exists, where X is a number appended to the scheme name). The new permissions scheme will not require a moderator to carry out any actions.
