Add, Remove Team Members, and Change Permissions

This page explains how to add and remove users as project team members and how to change the permission of a current team member. Each project has project team members that have different levels of access to the project's resources and APIs. To grant a user access to a project, a project owner can add new users and grant them specific roles. To learn more about project team members and roles, read the Access Control documentation.
