We currently have two permission schemes configured for our JIRA server.
All the external contractors are part of a "External" group, is is used for the second permission scheme, but we are trying to look into a better way without having to create multiple permission schemes so the users can view and use the different projects.
At the moment all three have visibility on all 3 projects.
We don't have a fulltime IT person so myself and one of the other managers look after this between our other tasks. So any help is greatly appreciated
Move to using Roles instead of Groups in your permission scheme. Then you can add groups or users (or a mix) to control access.
If, for example, you say "Browse: Role: Users", then in project A, you add External User 1 into the role, in project B, you'd add 2 and 3, and in C, 1 and 2.
Hi Nic, Thanks for the tip, i'm having a play with this now (in some demo projects so not to effect live projects). If using Roles instead of groups do i need to use the lower role type? So if i set a permission of "Project Role (User)" for create attachments. roles developer and Administators will also be able to do this or do i need to add them in as well?
