The Teamwork Cloud Used Project Update plugin is an internal modeling tool plugin. Users can set up the plugin to update all or selected used projects to the latest versions. With this plugin we are also introducing a wizard to help select used projects for update.
Projects within the update path will require these permissions: Administer Resources; Edit Resource; Edit Resource Properties; Read Resource. However, the target used project only needs the Read Resources permission.
You have projects: A, B and C. These projects are in use as follows A->B->C (project A is using project B; project B is using project C). In order to update B project to the latest version you only need Read Resource on project B and Administer Resources, Edit Resource, Edit Resource Properties and Read Resource permissions on project A.
However, in order to update B and C used projects you need Administer Resources, Edit Resource, Edit Resource Properties and Read Resource permissions for projects A and B. You will need only Read Resource on project C.
