Which subscription do I need so I can assign roles and make projects/tasks private?

I have the free version of Jira and it´s awesome. Just need to confirm if ´Confluence´ is the subscription I need in order to assign users and roles to some projects (so I can have some private tasks only shared to some members of the team).

Hi Franco - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Confluence is not used to assign roles in Jira. In Jira you need to go to Settings > User Management to manage users.

But under the Free license you do not have the ability to manage roles and permissions that way. 

Thanks John! It´s still not clear to me which subscription should I get in order to manage teams, roles and permissions. Whenever I click on add subscription it sends me to a list of different services, but I´m not sure which to choose!

Thanks again for your help!

It depends on your needs - any plan greater then the "Free" plan will allow you to set 'Project permissions'

If I have under 10 Users but want to use Roles/Groups/Permissions, do I need to upgrade the subscription of just the administrator or all Users?

Many thanks.

Hey Matthew - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

For Jira Cloud, everything is based on the total number of active users. So it would apply to all users.
