How to add a team to project

I created a team on the People page.

Is there a way I can assign this team to a project?

I would want all the people invited to Jira to have access only to the projects they are attached to, hence the concept of creating a team.

How can I do this?

Hello Edimaobong,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

The Teams in Jira/Confluence is a place where people can see what other team members are working on. 

Teams are indeed a group of people, but currently, this type of group can't be added to a project. 

To add a group of people in a project it's necessary to create it directly on User management (Administration > Groups).

For more details about Teams, please check the documentation below:


Seems that Teams are useless then. How annoying.

Hi @Noel da Costa ,

I'm developer from the team that is building Teams . First of all, apologies on our cloud documentation. It's all over the place ATM and does not reflect the current status of things. In addition to what @Angélica Luz has mentioned above, it's also possible to,

  • Mention teams in Jira and Confluence
  • Share Jira issues and Confluence pages with teams

In addition to above, we are working on adding Teams support to Jira issues (where one could assign a ticket to a Team) and JQL (where issues assigned to a Team can be found). These will be released soon.

Managing permissions using Teams is something our team is heavily invested in and is actively looking in to. We do understand this is an integral part of the experience. But unfortunately I can't confirm a release time for that feature.

Hope this helps. Happy to answer any further questions.



Hi @Ishan Somasiri ,

Excited to hear about this update. Any status updates on this? 

Please link to the ticket if it exists.
