Share a project with group (of subgroups) not working


I’m using groups to organize the developers (I guess that’s a bit strange idea, but want to be able to give a group of users access to a project), so let’s say my groups are:

Teams (top level)

  • Team 1
  • Team 2
  • Team 3

If I give the Teams group Reporter access to the CI/CD project, they can’t access it. But if I give acess to all Team 1, Team 2 and Team 3 separately, they can then access it. Is that normal, or I am making some mistake? I couldn’t find this use-case in the docs, but sounds logical that when a project is shared with a parent group, then the members of the sub-groups to have access to it.

All the users are “external” users if that matters.

Thank you!
