Project Roles

    +
    Project roles are used to grant privileges to project members.

    Each project member is assigned one or more project roles that determine their privileges within the project. Project roles are separate from organization roles, which grant overall privileges to Couchbase Capella. Project roles control who can create database credentials and their level of access to cluster data.

    The following table describes the available project roles and their associated privileges.
