What permission levels are available for projects in Lighthouse?
When you create your Lighthouse project, you have three options for project type:
- Private project - This project is only viewable and editable by its members.
- Public project - This project's tickets and milestones can be viewed by anyone. Additionally, any invited user may add new tickets.
- Open Source project - This project's code, resources, or material are freely available to the public. This project is searchable and viewable by the public.
To create a new project, go to youraccount.lighthouseapp.com/projects/new:
Who can post to my projects?
In order to comment or create a ticket in any Lighthouse project, a user profile is required.
For Private projects, the user profile must be a member of the account-and have access to that specific project-in order to create a ticket. *Members should be trusted, as they will have access to the entire project; they may create, delete, edit any ticket, message, or page related to that project.
For Public projects, any user with a Lighthouse profile may post, though they cannot edit.
OSS project members need to be invited to post/modify tickets. Anyone user can post a ticket to an OSS project as long as they have a Lighthouse profile.
Members and private/public projects count towards your plan's limitations. You may invite as many users as you wish.
