Product/Project Access Control


Product/Project privileges are set when users create a product/project. Users can set Access Control for the product/project.






Access Control are generally three types, Default, Private, and Whitelist.


  • Default: Privileges set in Company->Privilege. If you have the privilege to access Product/Project module in ZenTao, you will be able to access the product/project. It is more like Public.
  • Private: Privileges set for project team members. If you are set as a team member in Project->Team, you will have access to it.
  • Custom: Privileges for team members and users on the whitelist( refer to the screenshot below).


Example

Let's say there are three users, user1(Dev), user 2(Dev) and user3(PO). Project1 is linked to Product1.


Set Product 1 as Public and Project 1 Private.


  • User 1: set as a project team member. Then the user has access to both the product and the project.
  • User 2: not a project team member. Then the user has no access to the project.


Set Product 1 as Private and Project 1 Private.

  • User 1: set as a project team member. Then the user has access to both the product and the project.
  • User 2: not a project team member. Then the user has no access to neither the project nor the product.
  • User 3: set as PO to the Product but not a project team member. Then the user can access the Product but no Project.


Tips: When you check a user's privilege, always check whether the product or the project is linked.
