Attach a user to several groups by default ... possible ?


I created several projects in JIRA, and a lot of groups with specific roles.

Is this possible to attach a user, by default, to several groups I've created ? because, in each project, I linked a group with a specific role, and I would like that a user access to every project's issuetypes...

Thanks a lot,

Hi Christophe,

Currently, there's no feature that provide the solution. New users will be in groups assigned by default to the groups that are granted with *JIRA Users* permission in global permission setting.



as of now there is no option to choose groups when new user created

may be some one have workaround/any other approch!!
