You can extend a user’s default permissions by granting them individual permissions in other image repositories, by adding the user to a team. A team defines the permissions a set of users have for a set of repositories.

To create a new team, go to the DTR web UI, and navigate to the Organizations page. Then click the organization where you want to create the team. In this example, we’ll create the ‘billing’ team under the ‘whale’ organization.


Click ‘+’ to create a new team, and give it a name.

Add users to a team

Once you have created a team, click the team name, to manage its settings. The first thing we need to do is add users to the team. Click the Add user button and add users to the team.

Manage team permissions

The next step is to define the permissions this team has for a set of repositories. Navigate to the Repositories tab, and click the Add repository button.
