Giving Users Access to Particular Project(s)

We have been trying to create a couple of users and give them access to a single or multiple projects so they can only see those and log tasks/issues. I tried to set it up by creating a new user group and giving that user group "Can sign in' permission (under JIRA Software). I then assigned a user to this group. I then went into 'Default Tempo Team' and allowed that user to a project. However, when I log in as that user, it shows some the 'Software' projects (no business type projects) but more interestingly, it doesn't show the only project I granted this user access to. 

Please note, the group I created for this is a new user group and I only assigned this user to that group. 

Anyway, I have spent quite a bit of time on this but couldn't get it to work. Please advise what I am not doing right and how I can get it working. 

Thanks.

The Tempo Team has nothing to do with project access.

I think the most simple answer is to go to the project roles and add the new group into the role of "user"

You'll then need to work out what is letting the group get into the Software projects - check that they're not using "anyone" in the permissions and what other groups/users are in the roles in those projects.
