I am trying to give a single user access to a single project with the following permissions;
- only access to a single specific project
- can view issues and sprints
- ideally only manage the backlog (wondering if it is even possible)
Current use case is a single user in this single project but, the same situation would apply to all projects with different users having the same permissions.
The main thing you need to do is rip out jira-users from all your permissions. This way a new user has access to nothing. Then you build a permission scheme that is role based. Then you add the appropriate users into the appropriate roles in the appropriate projects.
For the most part I am still configured right out of the box but, I feel like I am missing something in your explanation.
If I can lean on you a little further.....
I created new groups in Global permions and added users into those while removing the jira-users from them. I see the Project Users role in my project which has jira-users in it. If I understand you correctly I should pull the jira-users group from the Users role in the project? When I do that I break pretty much every other users access to the project.
I am suspecting that I am missing correctly removing permissions associated to the jira-users group but I simply cannot find them? Any suggestions?
Unless you want absolutly everyone who can logon to have access to your project do not use the jira-user group. You can not REMOVE access via the permission scheme, only give them. So you can give jira-users browse permission, but not give them edit or create.
You can use a security scheme that is applied on an issue by issue basis to limit access, although you can make it apply to all issues. But that happens after the issue is created.
