About Managing User Groups and Permissions

To protect a project from unauthorized access, ALM enables you to assign each user to one or more groups. ALM includes predefined groups with default privileges. Each group has access to certain ALM tasks. The default user groups include: TDAdmin, QATester, Project Manager, Developer, and Viewer.

Performance Center:

  • The following additional default user groups are available: Performance Advisor, Performance Tester, Performance Test Specialist.

When a project requires that certain user groups have privileges that are outside the scope of their default permissions, you can add your own customized user groups and assign each group a unique set of privileges.

After you set user group permissions, you can also define the ALM modules to which you want to give a user group access. When a user group member logs in to a project, only the authorized modules are displayed.
