Organization-level roles and permissions

  • Owner - is granted by default when creating a new organization or transferred by other users, who has full permission related to the organization, including teams, users, projects, licenses, plugins, and subscriptions.
  • Admin - is granted by the Owner, who has the privileges of the Owner but cannot manage the subscriptions.
  • User - is automatically assigned when a person is first invited to collaborate in an organization. Users can only monitor project progress.
  • Billing Manager - is granted by the Owner or Admin, who has the privileges of the User with additional permission to manage subscriptions.

Invite a user to the organization

  • Only the organization Owner or Admin can invite a user to the organization.
  • From Katalon TestOps dashboard, select an organization.

  • Enter an email address and click Invite.
  • Copy the activation link and send it to that person.

The invited person accepts the invitation by clicking the activation link directing to Katalon TestOps and then clicking the name of the organization. Before that person accepts the invitation, their email address will be listed in PENDING INVITATIONS. Once the person joins the organization, their name and email address will be shown below the Users tab with the default User role.

The new user can only access projects when added by the team Owner or Admin to a team.
