Group and project members API

Valid access levels

The access levels are defined in the Gitlab::Access module. Currently, these levels are recognized:

  • No access (0)
  • Guest (10)
  • Reporter (20)
  • Developer (30)
  • Maintainer (40)
  • Owner (50) - Only valid to set for groups
Caution: Due to an issue, projects in personal namespaces will not show owner (50) permission for owner.

Limitations

The group_saml_identity attribute is only visible to a group owner for SSO enabled groups.

The email attribute is only visible to a group owner who manages the user through Group Managed Accounts.
