Employee/contractor management in JIRA

I was hoping to keep a CRM type collection of employees, contractors, clients, etc. I was hoping to get some suggestions on tools that connect with JIRA to do that.


It would be the best scenario if I could pull from that tool/list to "invite" contractors/employees to certain projects or issues.


For example, let's say I am developing a game and I have someone who does concept art for me sometimes, but not on every project. I would love to be able to have that person's information stored somewhere and just invite them to an issue/project when I need them.


Any suggestions would be much appreciated, I am very new to atlassian products and I am not sure of everything each tool is capable off.

I believe you just have to create a different group for each vendor you have and then assign the permissions accordingly on each project as well.
