What is the relationship between project context and security?


TRIRIGA has the notion of project-based security scope, also called project context. At the upper right-hand side of the main TRIRIGA portal, there is a toggle to switch between Company and Project-level security, as well as a query to find and select in which project to operate.

To see and select a project, the user must be given specific security access to a project. This is done by adding the user’s group or the specific user to the Security tab of the project. Once the user or users have been granted access to the project, and they select the project from the project selector on the portal, they are then in the “context of the project.”

Any records created in the project context are then owned by that project, and security is restricted to those records, so the records are only visible and editable to those people that have access to the project, and have also switched their scope to run in that project context.

Items like documents and folders within Document Manager will also operate in a project context. You may notice that files uploaded to the Notes & Documents tab of records in the project context have a different folder path within Document Manager. Because the entire Document Manager tree is also in the project context, it is necessary to have the parent folder created in the project context as well. This folder’s path will be different than the uploads on records at the company level.
