@Vijay Uskamalla If you're looking for users to have access to the backlog but not be able to change the ranking in it, this can only be controlled by team membership. System role permissions do not control the ability to rank or not rank backlog items. If you do not want a user to be able to rank the backlog, remove them from Team Members in the Program.

However, when you do this, they will also lose other functionality that may or may not be important. There is another article that talks about this and how team membership works in Jira Align. Adding Jira Align users to Portfolios vs Programs

Hi @Rae Gibbs - Thanks for the answer.

Quick question for you, If I removed the user from team member in the program, did he/her can able to see the backlogs in Jira Align?
