We would like to prevent jira users from changing project details, including the project name and key.
We have 3 user groups, site admins, admins and jira users and we have removed the 'Administer Projects' permissions for all groups other than site-admins, however jira users are still able to change project details including the project name and key, which is highly undesirable. We trust our users, however we don't trust users to change project details by accident.
We've tried various options with global permissions, restricted groups, application access and permission schemes, but there doesn't appear to be a permission to control the ability to disable/restrict users from changing project details
Does anyone have a solution for this issue please, or is it a feature we need to live with and hope users do not accidentally change project details?
Thanks for your suggestion.
We've since fixed the issue, which relates to the 'type' of user access granted when new users are invited to join Jira Cloud from the invite screen.
When inviting users to join the Cloud instance, there is a choice to select the type of user, including the 'Trusted' user ... this 'Trusted' user type was allocated by default when the invites were sent, giving users greater permissions than we wanted.
We needed to select the 'basic' user type when inviting users, which far limits their permissions and prevents them editing the project details, such as project name and key. We just had to change the user type to 'basic' as opposed 'trusted'.
Works a treat, now!
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
