Changing the owner of an environment, template, project, or asset

Account administrators can change the owner of an environment, template, project, or asset.

Contents

Determine who can own an environment, template, project, or asset

The new owner must have:

  • Enough storage space available to accept the environment, template, project, or asset.

    This applies to users who have user or department limits. For example, if a user has 60 GB of storage left in her personal storage limit or department storage limit, she can’t become the new owner of a template that is 80 GB; this would exceed her storage limit.

    For more information about user and department limits, see Setting usage limits.

  • Permission to own an environment, template, project, or asset.

    The user must be a standard user, user manager, or account administrator. Restricted users must be the editor or manager of a project.

    For more information about user permission levels, see User roles and access permissions and Sharing resources with projects.
