I love how Jira and Confluence are being integrated more and more over time. It is so cool to have a Pages section in all Jira projects to show the content of their linked spaces!
But how could that integration be even better than that? This article explores a way to do so.
Confluence spaces linked to Jira projects require to add the same set of users twice, once for each product.
User groups can help here, but only Site Admins can manage them. Since it is good to have a reduced number of Site Admins and we wouldn't like to overload them with user access requests, a different approach would be desirable.
While teams are a very promising feature, they cannot be added to Jira project roles or Confluence space permissions for the moment. Even if that possibility became true in a not too far future, project/space access would be left in the hands of all team members. Don't get me wrong: I'd love it!
However, it would also be nice to have a way in which just Project Administrators kept control over who can access their Jira projects and linked Confluence spaces and still doing so just once.
So, why not providing an option to unify Confluence spaces permissions with those of their linked Jira projects?
|Confluence Space Permission||Jira Project Permission|
|All > View||Browse Projects|
|All > Delete own||Delete Own Attachments|
|Pages > Add||Edit Issues|
|Pages > Archive||Move Issues|
|Pages > Delete||Delete Issues|
|Blog > Add||Edit Issues|

|Restrictions > Add/Delete||Set Issue Security|
|Mail > Delete||Delete Issues|
|Space > Export||Administer Projects|
|Space > Admin||Administer Projects|
On changing user permissions in the Jira project, said user permissions would be updated in the linked Confluence space.
