Overwrite a project member's permissions

This call changes a project member's permissions for a specified project.

Users may have the following permissions on the Seven Bridges Platform:

  • Read
  • Write
  • Copy

For more information, see the documentation on setting project member permissions. Note that some user permissions imply others: for example, if you give a user admin permission, then they automatically receive read, write, copy and execute permissions.

The Seven Bridges Platform API has two method to modify project members' permissions. This method uses the HTTP verb PUT, and the other uses the HTTP verb PATCH.

The difference between the two concerns the way that they update the information stored about the user. PATCH allows you to update just one part of the user's information --- for instance, just the value stored for the user's copy permission. On the other hand, a PUT request will fully overwrite the user's permission information. This means that when issuing a PUT request you must enter values for every key required to describe the user, even if the values for some keys are unchanged.
