Permissions: - We have Jira in-house and its working well, I want to give an external contractor access to it now, but limit what he sees just to the projects they are involved in. is this possible? and if so point me in the right direction.
There's a bit of work you usually need to do to unpick the defaults - these are quite open, and poorly designed for what you need to do
The default is to have a group called "JIRA users", which is used to say "people in this group can log in". The problem then is that the group is, by default, added to all your projects in the role of "user", and the default permission scheme says "people in the role of users can see and use the project". So everyone is a user.
To unpick this, you either:
In both cases, you then make sure your external contractor is not in jira-users but is in external-users.
