One User One Project




We have three projects in our account. We want only one user can access one project. 

For example:

User A can only see Project 1

User B can only see Project 2

User C can only see Project 3


I have gone through this ( ) video and tried below things

  • Creating a Permission Scheme
  • Assign Permission Scheme
  • Creating Group

I am not sure if that is the issue that I get all permission schemes under the Default software scheme and I do not find any way to keep only one project there.

Also looks like the default group user is added to the Default software scheme. If I chose not to add them there then the user gets "You don't have access to any service desks."

You don't "restrict" people from access to Jira, it is a lot easier to think of it as "allow"

For a very simple case that you describe, I would

  • Create a new project role called something like "User access to project"
  • Create a single permission scheme, in which
    • You grant Browse Project to Role: User access to project
    • You do not grant Browse Project to any other role, user, group, whatever
  • Update your three projects so that
    • They all use your new permission scheme
    • User A is in "User access to project" in Project 1
    • User B is in "User access to project" in Project 2
    • User C is in "User access to project" in Project 3

This solves for the very simple case above.  It's not a lot of use, as I know your description is intended to get the basics clear, but it shows the principles - if you want someone to see a project, grant them permission to do it.  If they should not see a project, do not let them in.
