Project Rights Dialog Box (Administrator)

Visual Studio 2005

Displays and changes access rights for users in selected projects.

Dialog Box Access

In Visual SourceSafe Administrator, on the Tools menu, click Rights by Project.


To use this dialog box, you must first select Enable Rights and Assignments commands on the Project Rights tab in the SourceSafe Options dialog box.

Add User

Displays the Add Users for <name> dialog box, which allows you to add users to the selected project.

Delete User

Deletes a user from the Users column.


Lists the projects in the current Visual SourceSafe database, from which you can select a project.


Specifies access rights assigned to a user.

User Rights

Specifies the project rights Read, Check Out/Check In, Add/Rename/Delete, and Destroy assigned to the user in the Users column. After you select a check box, the corresponding access right is displayed in the Rights column.


Lists the users who have project rights in the selected project.


This dialog box shows the effect of rights propagation. For example, if a user has the Destroy project right in the root project, then under Projects, you see that the user has the Destroy right in all subprojects, unless you explicitly change the access rights. Explicit changes are displayed in the Assignments for <name> dialog box.
