Setting Group Permissions

We've just started the trial of HgLab and I'm trying to figure out how to set permissions on groups. I was able to get our AD integrated so I'm seeing all of our groups, but I don't see any options for permissions. The only way I've found to allow users access to the repo is to add them to the 'System Administrator' group. Is there an existing group that provides read only access?

    Here's what you need to do. Add a Role called something like "Contributors", do not set any permissions. Then go to the Team area of your Project and click "+ Team Membership" button. This is where you set which Roles a particular Principal (be it a User or an entire Group) will have within the Project.

    The logic behind all this is as follows: a User is granted access to a Project (and full read-write access to all Repositories for that Project) either when he (or she) is added as a Team Member or when a Group this User is in is added as a Team Member.

    This all is overly convoluted, so please do contact me if something's not clear enough.

    One more thing to note: do not invest heavily in setting up elaborate Roles and Groups: full overhaul of the whole security subsystem is in the works. I will gradually be adding support for more fine-grained System- and Project-level permissions (will be released in a couple weeks) as well as Repository- and Branch-level ACLs.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Your suggestion to create a “Contributors” role is a workable solution for now.
