Bulk Change Project Role Assignments

Is there a way to add a user to a project role across all existing projects -- in bulk? Default role memberships is a good way to be proactive but we are looking for a retroactive method.

JIRA Command Line Interface addProjectRoleActors action. Use runFromList or runFromSql to make is easier to all projects.

Thanks Bob. My assumption will be that since you put in the effort to crearte this functionality then it cannot be found as a native JIRA operation.

We utilize some of your other work. This will be helpful, too.

With Tempo's recent move of changing permissions schemes to add a Project Role making it ncessary to add all of our company managers manually to existing projects I found a need to search for a solutoin to do it quickly ... and here I am again finding that the only way is to pay.

Sorry Bob, nothing against you making money ... just highly against forced changes that give me more work and no solution without having to spend more money than we already are.

Just a question: The command is the following: jira --action addProjectRoleActors --project "zjiracli" --role "administrators" --userId "project-admin" If I have 2,000 projects, is there some command like this? jira --action addProjectRoleActors --project "all" --role "administrators" --userId "project-admin" or what about if I need just 1,990 projects (not all projects)?

You can now do this for no extra charge by going to the Administration > Roles page for the project where it lists available roles. Here, you can click in the Users/Groups column to add membership to these roles for the existing project.

Hi, I realize this is an old thread, what it might be worth mentioning that Profields 6.0 features Bulk Operations, a feature inspired in Jira's own bulk changes but applied to project entities.

Specifically, Bulk Operations allows adding any number of users to a role in any number of projects with just one action.
