Sharing resources

Learn about sharing resources within an organization.

You can share resources of a project to all projects within an organization so that the resource becomes available for use by other teams or users who have rights to the organization. However, a resource cannot be edited or shared while other projects are using it.

You can only share a resource within an organization, not across organizations.
