our company would like to use Atlassian Access to enable the synching of users and user groups from our active directory to Jira. My first question is if I can use all the synched user groups (from our active directory) for permission management in Jira/Confluence. Take for example: I would like to assign the group of engineers (from AD) the project role of administrators in a specific Jira project.
Is there any option with Atlassian Access or general in Jira Cloud to combine the Jira Project Creation with the Active Directory? So that every synched user group from the Active Directory automatically gets a Jira project created and assigned? Hopefully, I explain the use case clearly enough.
Looking forwards to your answers. Thanks in advance!
Hi @Malin Rathjen ,
Groups that are synced from your external IdP (using the user provisioning feature) are available to be used in permission schemes just like any other group. So once the group is synced, you can assign it to the correct role following the instructions here: https://support.atlassian.com/jira-cloud-administration/docs/manage-project-role-membership/

There are APIs for creating projects in Jira, but this would need to be something you automate yourself. There's no built-in functionality for this.
