Applies to CucumberStudio Cloud, and to Enterprise ver. 3.3 - Last updated on November 17, 2023

From the settings page you can manage the project settings like collaborators, integrations and preferences.

The Collaborators list

To add a new member to your project, write their email address and click on Add user. This user has to be registered before, meaning that they already have a CucumberStudio account.

Once you have added a new user, you can:

  • Remove them from the project by clicking Unassign button
  • Change their role

Project ownership

In this section, you can see what organization owns the project. To change the owner, simply select the desired organization from the Change owner drop-down list and click Change:

  • To change the owner, you need to be an Administrator of the project (see below about user roles in projects).

  • The drop-down list contains only those organizations in which you have the Administrator role.

  • When you assign a project to an organization, CucumberStudio appends all users from that project to the organization (of course, if these users are not in the organization already).

    It uses the following rules to assign organization roles to these users:

    Project role   Organization role
    Administrator Member
    Member Member
    Tester Member
    Reader Reader
  • The list of items also shows how many seats (users) are available in the selected organization, and how many seats will be consumed as a result of the change (this number of users will be added to the organization).


A user can have one of the following roles in a CucumberStudio project:


Has access to all the project settings and data.

The number of Administrators in the project is not limited.


Has access to all project data except for the project description and settings (that is, Members cannot manage the users of the project).


Has access to manual execution features.


Can view scenarios and information on test runs but cannot edit anything.

Don’t confuse these roles with user roles in organizations.

Change user role

To change the role of a user, you need to have an Administrator role in the project.

  • Simply select the desired role for the user in the Change role column:

    Change user role

You cannot change the role of Reader users this way if these users also have a Reader role in the organization that owns the project. Readers in organizations remain Readers in projects.

To change the role of these users, go to the organization settings and change their roles in the organization from Reader to Member (see Users in Organizations). Then, return to the project settings and change the user role as described above.


You can integrate CucumberStudio with many tools:

Secret Token

Secret token of your project is used when you want to extract data from CucumberStudio and access your project via API. The CucumberStudio publisher uses the secret token of your project to extract your tests and generate scripts for test automation frameworks.
