How can I forbid a user to create a project?

David D August 2, 2021

Hi there,

my question is simple: Can I forbid users to create their own projects in JIRA WORK MANAGEMENT (edit)? If yes, how?

I cannot find any global permission for that.

 

Kind regards,

D

Admin -> Global permissions -> Remove the "create team managed projects" from the people you want to stop creating projects.

and if it is a company managed project then you should see who your admins are cause there might be a few too many :)

Any solution was found for this??

I also need to block the creation of any project created for the Team, but the function is already disabled and they are still able to create these projects.

Hi @David D

from the Jira Work Management FAQ I found:

For instances with only Jira Work Management provisioned, admins can now grant users the permission to create Business projects from the default list of templates. These users will not be able to manage any settings aspect of those Business projects — only create them. This is ideal for instances where admins want to leverage the power and consistency of company-managed projects but want to delegate project creation ability to users.

Is is correct you are ONLY using Jira Work Management but no other product right now? I have read about the possibility to adjust that setting but on a different page there is just a broken link.
I have no instance at hand to compare at the moment and I am unsure where the setting should hide. Perhaps other Community members have seen the setting already.

Regards,
Daniel

Thanks @Daniel Ebers 

No, I'm using JWM and Confluence. At the beginning I just used JWM. I could not see any difference in the settings.

Kind regards,

The presence of Confluence should be not related to what you are seeing. Because the documentation links currently does not go anywhere probably the setting is under maintenance.

However, you could double check from "Global Permissions" if there is by chance an option to disable the creation of new JWM projects by users - I believe that it have been there for a short while but I cannot say for sure anymore.

Thank you for your answers. I should have stated that I'm in Jira Work Management. The global permission for "Team Managed projects" is disabled. The users are normal "Jira Work Management Users" and have no admin status. Strangely enough, any user can create a project.
