What are minimum necessary roles for deployment

Hello all, I am studying for a certification and there is one question to which I cannot find a satisfying answer.

To deploy an application in Lifetime in which environment must an IT user have Change & Deploy permissions?

Target, Source or both? 

And if the answer is "only Target environment" then the next question is: which is the minimum role a user must have to add an application to a deployment plan? 


I currently work in a factory where I don't have enough permissions to run these tests.

Thanks in advance.


Hello Pedro, 

In that case, I would say that the minimum permissions needed would be the "Change And Deploy".

Please refer to this post on the subject.

Hello Pedro,

Roles are not the same as Permissions.

A user can have different roles with different permissions in different Teams or Apps.

You can have the Developer Role and have a No Acess Permission for example.

For more information please take a look at these links:

Hope it helps!

Hello Paulo, I understand I made a mistake in the title of the post and in other place where I mention roles instead of permissions, please read permissions wherever it says roles. However my question is still unanswered. I am asking about minimum permissions for executing these tasks and none of the provided links answer that question. 

Hello Pedro, 

In that case, I would say that the minimum permissions needed would be the "Change And Deploy".
