Circle Roles

Circle roles can be assigned to teams and users in Agemba based on the licenses setup. Even though it is possible to setup roles per user, it is highly recommended to create teams, add users and then assign roles to the teams. See more on teams here. In this way it is also easier to assign work and mention users in comments by simply using the team name.

A user role consumes a license quota in that Site even in the case where there are several Circles within the same Site and users are shared. The following Circle roles are available:

Limited User – this role requires the Limited license (Read more). User with this role whether directly or indirectly via team membership, has most most of the viewing rights and very limited editing rights for work assigned to them. Adding attachments to the work assigned to them and general commenting is also permitted for users with this role. This role does not permit altering of the state of epics and stories i.e setting them to ready, in progress and so on.

Ordinary User – this role requires the Standard license (Read more). Like the Limited role, this role gives viewing right to the user but more extensively. The user with this role has also extensive editing rights. This role also allows for users to start and end work on epics and stories i.e set to ready, in progress and done. It however does not permit the actions that affect the preparation, delegation and termination of epics and stories.

Manager – this role requires the Standard license (Read more). It permits every possible action within the circle apart from deleting the comments of others. In Scrum, this role is synonymous with that of a product owner.
