How to manage Project managers from the project console

#What is a Project Manager?

Project Manager is a role that allows you to give access to the archive, manage cloud instances or reach the support for a Project. There are 3 kinds of Project Managers, depending on your company role on the project:

  • As a Client Project Manager, I can view and manage (add/remove) all the accesses on my project.
  • As a Project Manager from a Main System Integrator, I can view accesses from my company and from the client's company, and manage accesses only from my own company.
  • As a other Project Manager, I can view and manage accesses only from my own company.

For a given project, there must be at least one Client Project Manager and one Project Manager from the Main System Integrator.
