Project collaborators

Project collaborators

Collaborators are the people you add to the project to work together. After you create a project, add collaborators to share knowledge and resources freely, shift workloads flexibly, and help one another complete jobs.

Required permissions
To manage collaborators, both of the following conditions must be true:
  • You must have the Admin role in the project.
  • You must belong to the project creator's IBM Cloud account.

Add collaborators

To add a collaborator as a Viewer or Editor of your project, they must either be:

  • A member of the project creator's IBM Cloud account, or;
  • A member of the same organization single sign-on (SAML federation on IBM Cloud).

To add a collaborator as an Admin of your project, they must be a member of the project creator's IBM Cloud account.

Watch this video to see how to add collaborators and grant them access to your projects.

  6. Click Add.

The invited users are added to your project immediately.

Add service IDs

You can create service IDs in IBM Cloud to enable an application outside of IBM Cloud access to your IBM Cloud services. Because service IDs are not tied to a specific user, if a user happens to leave an organization and is deleted from the account, the service ID remains ensuring that your application or service stays up and running. See Creating and working with service IDs.

To add a service ID to your project:

  1. From your project, select the Access Control page on the Manage tab.
  2. Click Add collaborators and select Add service IDs.
  3. In the Find service IDs field, search for the service name or description and select the one you want.
  4. Add other service IDs that you want to have the same access level.
  5. Select the access level.
  6. Click Add.
