I have a question regarding Permissions: In my project I'm Project Admin but I have no permission for linking Issues. So I can't do that.
1) Is this the default behavior in JIRA? Or is it possible to do e.g. linking Issues without this permission in your projects?
2) How does this behave for the JIRA Global Admin? Is the permission scheme relevant for him/her, or can she do 'whatever he/she wants to do?'
Thanks a lot in regards,
Being a JIRA admin or project admin doesn't give you permission to do anything no directly related the that role. The issue permission scheme controls everything related to working with issues. Giving admins blanket access is a very poor security model.
Yes, the the JIRA admin can give himself permission, but that isn't a good design. Unless you have a very small instance the JIRA admin shouldn't have a reason to work issues in most projects. I have a project for people to request changes/updates to JIRA and the admin works issues in that project.
The JIRA admin creates the permission scheme, preferably using project roles and the project admin assigns users to the roles. That way the project admin has complete control over what users can do in their project. Using this model one permission scheme can be used for all projects. The JIRA admin just needs to tell all the project admins what roles can do what actions. Roles can also be used to restrict workflow transitions.
