Hey Aarohi!

When inviting a user to a workspace via the Workspace Settings menu, you must specify a group for them to join as the group will define what kind of access they have to the workspace and its repositories (ie you will require Write access to allow a user to create projects/repo's).

If you invite a user to the workspace by inviting them to a repository from the Repository Settings menu, a group will not need to be added - although they will only have access to make changes to the repository which you have invited them to.

I would suggest creating a group and inviting the user to the workspace in this manner via Workspace Settings.

We donot have seperate group for new project.

Please suggest in this case.

Hey Aarohi,

You do not need a seperate group per project, user groups define if a user has READ, WRITE or ADMIN access to a workspace as a whole. The following article describes this in detail:
