Can project lead change component leads?

Hey, everyone!

I am wondering if a project lead is able to change components leads (in same project) or can only an administrator do that? If so is there maybe some way to make it happen?

Thank you very-very much!

A project administrator can do, which normally is anyone who is the Administrators role for that project, and most likely includes the lead.

I tend to include "project lead" in the "Can administer project" permission in the permission scheme as a default - makes sense that your Project Lead should be able to maintain components, versions and users in their project.

Thank you, it worked!

Hi Tim,

if the project lead has the Administrators project role, he / she can change the component leads.

Best regards
