What is the value of setting a user in a Project to the Administrator?

It appears that access to edit (add users, remove users, & set them as privileged) Projects is granted via Access Manager to members of the Project Administration Group.  What is the purpose of setting an admin (who is a member of the Project Administration Group), as an Administrator within the Project?

You have Project Administrators (manages Projects) and Project Admins (manages a Project). If you don't use a Project Admin then there is no additional benefit.

Ah, so is it like Assign to Project/Remove from Project - in that you can either make a user 'privileged' in a Project or grant the user access via Access Manager Rules, both approaches work.

If so, is there a Preference for assigning Project Admins like there is for Assign/Remove Projects that controls how to handle conflicting situations (TC_project_validate_conditions)?

It's more like a Group administrator. Not that I'm aware of. The create_project utility works for the initial creation and make_user allows you to add members. Otherewise, there isn't much.

Hi Randy,

 

Can you also use the make_user utitlity to define the member of a project?

I thought I'd heard where make_user was enhanced to include project members but I'm not seeing it in Tc11.4. Searching UGAnswer doesn't reveal any instances where the "-file=" includes a projectmember column. My mistake.

I guess we still have to use create_project or set_default_project. Validate using admin_data_export and generate_admin_data_report.
