Hi @gsvandr

This actually looks to be the main navigation bar on the left-hand side.

The "People" section lists the users who have access to your platform and their user profiles.

You can form "Teams" from this screen if there are a group of users who work together. You can also add people, manage users and their access from this screen, depending on your user or administration level.

you are seeing this as a Project Admin or site-admin.

The people section allows you to manage who has access to the project and also what level of access they have, which roles and groups they belong to, etc.

be very careful with this as you might restrict users who need access at some level.


is there something in particular you are trying to do?

Hello @Marianne Miller 

Do you know if it is normal that new jira software user can have access to any projects without beeing added to them ? I mean I have made a migration from portal only account to atlassian account of some of our colleagues, then they were able to browse inside some projects without being added to them specifically.

Moreover since it is aclassic  business project I have made aside the support project, the proposed roles in the business project on the people menu are only "administrator", Service desk Customer" "Service Desk Team".

I can notice that on a next gen project the people menu does not appear.
