Project Settings


  • Public: if checked, the project can be viewed by all the users, including those who are not members of the project. If unchecked, only the project members have access to it, according to their role.
  • Subproject of: lets you define the parent project. The projects hierarchy is limited to 2 levels. A parent project cannot be itself a sub-project. When creating sub-project, every member from parent project will be member of the sub-project.
  • Name: project display name (must be unique).
  • Description: description that appears on the project overview.
  • Identifier: used internally way by the application (must be unique). Once the project created, this identifier cannot be modified.

This screen lets you choose modules you want to use for the project. After a module was disabled, it can be re-enabled with all its data.

You can for example disable 'Issue tracking' module for a single project. Existing issues are not deleted, you will be able to access them if you re-enable the module.


This screen lets you define project members and their roles. A user can have only one role in a given project (but different roles on other projects). The role of a member determines the permissions he has on a project.
When you create a subproject B from a project A, all members of A will be members of B.
