How to add external consultants to a project?


We want to add to an external consultant to a project in Jira without giving him access to any other project. Due to security/privacy concerns we do want to give him access to other "open" projects that we share across the company.

How can we do this the easiest way?

Hi @Tor-Eivind Rugseth ,

Create a new group, say external_consultant.

Add the user to the group.

Remove the user from jira-users group.

Provide application access to the new group - external_consultant

Add the group to the permission scheme. You can also add the user to the permission scheme of the project directly. You must ensure that none of your projects allow "Anyone" or "Any logged in user" to have browse project permission. If you have projects that has a permission scheme with browse project permissions to "Any Logged in User", you may need to change it to "jira-users".

Hello @Tor-Eivind Rugseth 

Welcome to the community.

Are you trying to give the consultant access to a Company Managed project or a Team Managed project?

Are you using both Company Managed projects and Team Managed projects in your instance?
