How to set project admins/leaders


I am trying to set the admins of a project like that:

user.addRole(username, "Administrators");

But the user becomes a developer instead of administrator. What could be the reason?

This widget could not be displayed.

It should be called like that: externalUser.addRole(externalProjectId, roleName)

Yes, thank you! I replaced the user name with the project and it is working now.

Another similar question: how can I not set the person who imports the project to be a leader ot the same project? In my case, not the project leaders will migrate their projects, but other people.

You need to set the lead user on ExternalProject, then it will be used instead of the currently logged in user.
