Where is the Jira Users permission?

According to the docs the JIRA User's permission is the permission that allows users to login.

I do not see this permission.

When I look at my global permissions (secure/admin/GlobalPermissions!default.jspa) I only see the following permissions:

  • JIRA System Administrators

  • JIRA Administrators

  • Browse Users

  • Create Shared Objects

  • Manage Group Filter Subscriptions

  • Bulk Change


I 'm experimenting with permissions and I created a new user and removed it from the jira-core-users group. Now want to give it just the login permission (without having to add it to the jira-core users group).

Ok I'm more confused now. Is application access a permission?

Is jira-core-users a permission or a group? How is jira-core-users given login access or is it not possible to separate the login permission from the jira-core-users group?

Is there no actual "login" permission at all and the only way to give a user login access is to put them in the jira-core-users group? Because if I do that they have access to see and do just about everything.
