I want to be able to let users do external system import with the Jira import Wizard but i dont want to allow them ability to adjust workflow or changed fields. How can i do this? it seems that the only way to restrict this is to change the role from Trusted to Basic but if they are trusted they can do the external import and anything with the workflow and if they are in the Basic role they cannot do either. is there a way to modify this or restrict in some other way?
There's a global setting called bulk change. You can get to it through the settings cog > system > global permissions
If you add the jira-software-users group then any user can import from csv via the 'create' menu.
I think to import from Trello, Jira Server/Cloud or JSON you'd need to give admin access so that they can access system jira import wizard.
Would that give you the functionality you are looking for?
i did that but i dont think it will work because to get to the external import tab you need access to settings to be able to go to System where that option is located, so the only way is to give the users full access to setting. unless am i missing something? let me know what you find.
i think there is confusion. what you are suggesting will work if they are going to create new issues. but to modify issues they have to go through the system import wizard which is only available to users with access to all settings, you cannot just decide which settings they have access to.
Yes, maybe - I thought you wanted to import Jira issues from an external system but I'm not sure what your use case is if it's not to create new issues.
Unfortunately no, you can't choose which settings to give an admin access to. There are project specific permissions you can give, and global permissions you can give, but all or nothing for admin settings.
Sorry, I thought you might be hoping to let users upload from CSV without admin access.
