Managing the project-related permissions through templates

On this page

As the organization admin, using permission templates allows you to define:

  • The permissions granted by default to users, groups, project creators, and individual users on new projects. 
  • Different sets of permissions that a project admin can apply to their project at any time.

Introduction to the permission template concept

A permission template defines the project-related permissions granted to groups and members of the organization. 

You can define several permission templates in your organization: 

  • You define the default template.
  • You can define a template that applies to specific projects according to their key pattern by using a regular expression. 

When a new project is created, SonarCloud uses a permission template to grant the default permissions on the project. It retrieves the template according to the following rules:

  • If the project key complies with the project key pattern of a template, then this template is used. What if several templates comply?
  • Otherwise, the default template is used.

The project admin can then change the permissions if necessary and apply any other template defined for the organization.
