What is the best option to add or remove user project permissions in Rally in bulk?


Bulk User Permissioning app


To use the Bulk User Permissioning application, add it to your dashboard or custom page from the App Catalog.

While the app is not supported, it is very useful for managing user permissions en masse from a GUI. 

Rally User Management toolkit

The second option is the Rally User Management toolkit. This is an unsupported, as-is Ruby toolkit that provides a powerful set of scripts for user management.  Find more details on the Github page.

The Rally user management toolkit takes a set of users formatted in a Tab-Delimited text file and performs the following functions:

  • Creates the users in your Rally subscription if they do not exist, and
  • Assigns and/or updates permissions to users across workspaces and projects.
  • Assigns and/or updates team memberships for users across projects
  • Enables or disables user in your Rally subscription

Rally-User-Management requires:


  • Ruby 1.9.3
  • rally_api 1.0.1 or higher



You can install rally_api and dependent gems by using:

gem install rally_api
