What profile data can be changed and by who

What user profile data can be updated depends on the rights given to currently logged in user by the Issues Tracking System administrators.

  • Product users  usually can change just their login Id, password, first name, last name, and e-mail address.
  • Development team members with no right to update other users profile can change their user Id, password, first name, last name, e-mail address, title, and reference to their manager.
  • Issue Tracking System Administrators and Development team members with right to update other users profile can change all fields in their own profiles as well as in other users profiles. If you belong to this group of users, please refer to User Profile Update Page in the Issues Tracking System Administrator's guide.

ITS allows to define different user profile for each product / product category. Common fields for all products / product categories are Login ID, Password, First Name, Last Name and e-mail address. These field are shared accross products and changing these fields for one product will change them for other products / product categories. Other user profile fields - Title, Manager and User Roles can be set different for each product / product category. To change user profile for different product go to the User Profile Update page for some product and then select product / product category for which you want to change the profile by selecting it from drop down list located on top right side of the User Profile Update page.
