Organization owners can allow members with admin permissions to adjust the visibility of projects and projects (classic) in their organization.

Who can use this feature?

Organization owners can allow project and project (classic) visibility changes for an organization.

About visibility changes for projects

You can restrict who has the ability to change the visibility of projects and projects (classic) in your organization, such as restricting members from changing projects and projects (classic) from private to public.

You can limit the ability to change project and project (classic) visibility to just organization owners, or you can allow anyone granted admin permissions to change the visibility.

This option may not be available to you if an enterprise owner restricts visibility changes for projects and projects (classic) at the enterprise level. For more information, see "Enforcing policies for projects in your enterprise."
