Hi Dana!

The default user group in Jira used to be jira-users, but since you now have three different flavors of Jira there are now three groups (jira-users, jira-software-users, jira-servicedesk-agents). You can use your own groups to define what application access the group has.

Note that as Jira Core is the default application, if you have a license for Jira Software or Jira Service Management, your users automatically have access to Jira Core without requiring an additional license. For example, a Jira Software user can view development information on an agile board, and can also view business projects.

Hope it helps.
