I am new to JIRA. yesterday I have installed it .
Today i am facing a problem is that, I have added 4 users including myself.. all were assigned a 'Administrator' privillage.
I am a administrator and i wan tto role dow nthe others as Normal/Ordinary user.
I have searched through but couldn't get any link which changes the type of User.
Anybody can help?
I'll be really thankful..
There are no "types" of user really, what matters is what groups a user is in.
Administrators are in the group jira-administrators by default. If you want normal non-admin users, you do NOT add them to that group. If you want to stop someone being an admin, you remove them from the group.
Er, why are you removing the group? You just want to remove the users FROM the group.
You need to have at least one group with administration rights, and Jira is stopping you from killing that group (because without it, you can't actually configure or use Jira). You'll find it won't let you remove all the administrators as well, because an inaccessible Jira is a pretty useless system.
There are a set of global permissions which you need to understand properly before you go any further. Have a look in Admin -> Global Permissions. You will find a list of special permissions such as "use Jira" and "administrate Jira".
On this subject, but not critical here, there is a standard recommendation I make.
Create a group for "can log in to Jira". Put it in the "Jira Users" global permission. Do NOT USE IT IN ANY PERMISSION SCHEMES. Many sites re-use the default "jira users" group for this, which is absolutely fine. Unfortunately, the default settings are immensely stupid and use the group in the default permission schemes, which people then (understandably) copy, reuse and make a mess of it all.
