Project administrators are responsible for creating and maintaining project areas. A project area is an area in the repository where information about one or more software projects is stored. A project area defines the project deliverables, team structure, process, and schedule.
- Adding users as members of project areas.
- Assigning roles to members.
- Creating team areas.
- User roles
- Permissions assigned to roles
- Timelines and iterations
- Operation preconditions and follow-up actions
- Work item types and their state transition models
You can create project areas in each application by using the project area editor. However, a more efficient method is to use the Lifecycle Project Administration user interface to create a lifecycle project. When you create a lifecycle project, you select a template that defines the project areas to create, the process to use for each project area, and the associations to establish between those project areas. Associations enable linking of artifacts, such as requirements, development work items, and test cases, across project areas. From within a lifecycle project, you can manage membership and role assignments for each of the constituent project areas.
