How to set limited access permission for external developer?


we are using Jira cloud with next-gen projects. Most projects use the the access setting "limited" which still permits everyone with site access to view the projects.

Now I would like to include an external developer who should only be able to view and collaborate on one specific project without being able to access any other project.

Unfortunately I could not find any setting or documentation that fits to this case. Is there a better solution than setting every project to "private"? Cause this would actually reduce transparancy, that we promote internally...

Thanks for your answers!

Hey Jake,

I am afraid that is one of the limitations that comes with Next-gen projects. They are easy to setup and work with, but VERY limited for any kind of customization. You would have to do exactly as you suggest - make every Next-gen project Private and just add how can see them. 

Thanks John,

not what I was hoping for but matches my impression ;-)

Are there any ideas / activities to have additional roles like "guest"  or "external developer"? I Could imagine we are the only company facing this issue...
