As I was trying to figure out how to enable the Portfolio Settings menu (dropdown) for a portfolio, I came across the tooltip associated with the Administer permission for this particular portfolio that I was trying to configure. It reads: “Access project settings and perform administration tasks. (Users will also need “Browse” permission).”
If I set this for a particular user (or group of users), would it automatically set the Browse permission for them? The Permissions configuration screen for this portfolio doesn’t show “Browse”, as it does when you’re configuring Administer at the project level. Is this by design?
In general, I just find it extremely confusing to set permissions for projects and portfolios, and frankly I don’t think SonarQube Enterprise Edition is ready for large scale deployments across a large enterprise without a full IT Admin team behind it.
The version in the screen shot attached is SonarQube Enterprise Edition v8.9
