User Groups & Project Roles: how to configure Edited

HK I'm New Here Nov 22, 2020

What steps are required to manage 50-100 users across c.24 projects in Jira.

Will be great if I can tips from anyone on clear steps on how to do this using project roles/ permossions, and how this should ideally relate to Groups and permission schenes.

i Want to create 3 project roles: project admins, Developers, and users. Each of these roles focused on only accessing a particular project rather than global jira application/ other projects.

However, the organization migrated a previous jira instance and inherited everything and therefore not sure how best to proceed. 

I want to set up project admins, project users, and project developers for new projects going forward. Will appreciate support and advice on how best do this efficiently.

Hi HK,

welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Unfortunately, first of all I must prepend that project permissions and roles in cloud free plans are pretty restricted.

Apart from that roles offer a great flexibility to let Project Administrators decide on their own which groups and/or users are entitled to several operations in their project. This article on project permissions explains it very well.
Their are powerful along with their respective Permission Scheme.

Please refer to this article for further information. Very useful in this matter also is this course.
