Permissions needed for adding users to a role without providing administrator

Mahesh Kumar CD February 13, 2024

We have a manager role provided for each project, but they cannot add users without providing the administrator access at the project level. We need to understand what additional access / permissions required to provide to a manager role in Jira to allow them to only add users to their projects.

 

Thanks

Mahesh

Hi @Mahesh Kumar CD,

Being able to add users to a project does require administer project permission in that project. Be aware that this is a permissions that only applies to that specific project; it does not allow that user to suddenly administer centrally managed items in Jira, which are still the responsibility of your Jira admin.

In team managed projects, being able to administer a project is indeed more impactful than in company managed projects, as more configuration is specific to the project itself.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Walter. 
But they will also need administrator permission to access the project settings and add the users. Can we do without providing administrator permissions/ access.

No, in a company managed project, they don't @Mahesh Kumar CD. If they are assigned to a role that has administer project permission in that project, that is enough.

To grant users product access (and at that point a Jira Software license), you need user admin rights at a higher level. That may be what you are referring to, but to add licensed users to your project, that is not the case.
