JIRA project roles in Confluence for permission management

Zoltán Lehóczky Oct 10, 2015

JIRA lets you add user groups (and users) to project roles. E.g. somebody can be an administrator on the project level. I'd like to use the same project roles in Confluence: I'd like project administrators to be admins of a Confluence space, without being global admins and without creating a separate user group for them.

Is this possible? Couldn't find a way.

I have several cases like that in my environment. If you go to the specific space permissions, you can set a discrete individual or individuals as admin on that space. Generally I try to avoid specifically granted permissions as that can rapidly get out of control but your use case is a valid one and this will work well for you.

Thanks Mike. I forgot to add but the reason I want to use project roles (with the alternative being groups) is not to give permissions to individual users.

That DOES make a difference yes. A) I dunno how to do that and B) that's a damned fine use case. I'll have to investigate that. Basically it would be almost like a JIRA transition making sure that a user is in a particular project role, in this case a Project Lead. I could use that. If either of us or others find it or have a way I hope it gets posted. I'll be using that.
