Add a User

To add a user to a project

  1. Go to username -> My Projects at the upper-right of the Tugboat screen.
  2. Select the project where you want to add the user.
  3. Click the Project Settings link to the right of the project’s title.
  4. In the Invite a User to This Project section, add the recipient’s email address, and select the appropriate user type from the drop-down.
  5. Press the big blue Invite button!

The user you’ve invited will get an email from with a link to accept the invitation.

User permissions in Tugboat are handled on a per-project basis. When users have access to a project, they have access to all the repositories within that project. When inviting users to your project, consider whether any of your repos contain sensitive data; you may want to split those repos out into a different project, where only a subset of users get access.
