How do I grant users limited read only access?

I need to grant access to a few people so that they may "observe" some of our projects and scrum boards.

I do not want them to be able to inadvertently change anything.  We have more than 20 projects, and I only want to allow them access to 4. 

How is this done in JIRA?

Just give them the "Browse Project" permission. If I were to implement it, I will create a Role called "Viewers" and add the "Viewers" role in the "browse project" permission on whatever permission scheme that project is using.

Browse Projects

Permission to browse projects, use the Issue Navigator and view individual issues (except issues that have been restricted viaIssue Security). Many other permissions are dependent on this permission, e.g. the 'Work On Issues' permission is only effective for users who also have the 'Browse Projects' permission.

Hi @Fred Anderson,

You could assign this group of people the browse permission only for those 4 projects.
