3.12. User Profiles

A user profile describes an environment that used to run the software for which issues are being tracked.
When reporting issues, users can elect to enter information like platform, operating system and version manually, or they can choose from a list of available profiles.
Each user has access to all the personal profiles they create, in addition to global ones; Profile data includes "Platform", "Operating System", "OS Version", and "Additional Description".
Global profiles are typically used by the administrator to define a set of standard system settings used in their environment, which saves users the trouble of having to define them individually. The access level required to manage global profiles is configured by the $g_manage_global_profile_threshold configuration option and defaults to MANAGER.
