Our organization uses various JIRA projects but there is one that I need to open up to an outside person. I only want that person to have access to one of our projects but he can currently see all projects.
The majority of our projects use the default permission scheme which allows the users group. If this user is removed from users he can not login or access anything. So I need to allow the user to login to JIRA OnDemand and only access the one project.
It can be performed in different ways but the one with the least changes would be to:
1. Create a new group and add the user there
2. Add the group to the Global Permissions (Jira Users) so the user can log in
3. Remove the user from the group 'users' that is enabling him to see all the other projects
4. Add the new group to your project's Role (Users) to grant him access to that project
Hi Mauro, I have followed your instruction and it worked so far. But now when this user creates an Issue in the Project Field he can see the titles of all other projects which is not good. Is there a way I can prohibit that, or did I miss something in your instruction?
The key thing that threw me were the project permission scheme 'Default software scheme' which is setup by default when you choose 'Kanban' projects. This permission scheme basically give permissions to everyone to everything... Changing it to 'Default Permission Scheme' solves this, making it only available to Users defined in the Project's 'Users & Roles'
Thanks for the video, one question I had was if we remove "Any Logged in User" from he Default Software Scheme. Wouldn't this effectively restrict access to view projects and tickets within them to users associated with that particular project? Right now we have access to all projects and I don't think we want to restrict that.
