Users

Caliber users are defined either manually by the Caliber administrator or by importing users from a LDAP directory. Each user is defined by a set of properties, the primary ones being:

You can display users by their userID or by their first and last name.

Users belong to one or many groups that define their access rights to requirements.

Each user must have an assigned license to log into Caliber from any client (Windows standalone, Eclipse, and Visual Studio).

There are five levels of users:

Caliber Administrators or Administrators
are members of the Administrators group and can only be created by other Server Administrators. They control license assignment, creating of projects and users. Depending on their security profile, an administrator does not necessarily have access to all user-level functions.
Project Admins
are users who are able to perform administrative tasks for only ‘project-admin enabled’ projects. Only those projects would be visible to a project Admin for which the logged-in user is a member. For the rest, the ‘non-admin’ projects for which the user is not a member, this user would simply be a regular Caliber user and should be able to perform the operations discussed below under their respective tabs. A Project Admin will NOT be able to view details of those projects for which he or she is not a member.
Baseline Administrators
perform all levels of baseline maintenance for all projects on the server. This user does not have to be a Server or Project Administrator. See Setting Security for information on making a user a baseline administrator.
Glossary Administrators
perform all levels of glossary maintenance for all glossaries on the server. This user does not have to be a Server or Project Administrator. See Setting Security for information on making a user a glossary administrator.
Users
perform user-level functions. They have no administrative rights. Users' security access to requirements is determined by the project security level. Projects may have security enabled or not. Once a project security is enabled, user access to requirements is defined by security profiles assigned to user groups for that project. Security profiles are defined once in the Caliber server and can be reused by all projects in that server.
