Managing an individual’s access to an organization project (classic)

As an organization owner or classic project admin, you can manage an individual member's access to a classic project owned by your organization.

Notes:

  • Projects, the all-new projects experience, is now available. For more information about Projects, see "About Projects."
  • You can only create a new classic project board for an organization, repository, or user that already has at least one classic project board. If you're unable to create a classic project board, create a project instead.

Note: If a person has multiple avenues of access to an organization classic project (individually, through a team, or as an organization member), the highest classic project permission level overrides lower permission levels. For more information, see "Project (classic) permissions for an organization."

Removing an organization member's access to a classic project

When you remove a collaborator from a classic project, they may still retain access to the board based on the permissions they have for other roles. To completely remove access to a classic project, you must remove access for each role the person has. For instance, a person may have access to the classic project as an organization member or team member. For more information, see "Project (classic) permissions for an organization."
