Can I restrict a JIRA users access to only 1 project?

We have multiple projects and I would like a user to log in and only be able to see one project.

Hi Kelsey,

This can definitely be done and here's what I would do:

  1. Copy the Default Permission Scheme
  2. Create a group for the user(s) not allowed to access that project
  3. Create a permission scheme with Browse Project permissions and add everyone to that permission including the group/user(s) you want to access that project
  4. Create a permission scheme for the other projects that everyone else is allowed to access and do not grant Browse Permissions to that group/user(s)

For the project you want that user to see you'll assign the permission scheme that has Browse Project permissions for that group. 

For the projects the user(s) should not have access to you'll want to assign the permission scheme that does not have the Browser Project permission for the group/user(s).

Hopefully that makes sense.  Here are some resources to help you get started creating Permission schemes:
