How can I restrict a group to only being able to access one project? I have 5 projects and I want a group (or certain individuals) to only be able to open one of the projects.
Hi @Iain Colquhoun,
To elaborate on Joe's point: I have done this in the past when we've had external vendor I only wanted to see one project.
This works well when you have only a few projects or a consistent few people in this group. It can be a little cumbersome when you have a lot. You may want to play around with this in a test environment so you can see how it works.
Side note: If you do this, when you add new people to the system you will notice that they will automatically be placed in both the 'jira-users' group as well as the new group. This is not a problem if they should be able to access everything but if they should only be in a limited permission group then you will have to edit their groups to remove them from the 'jira-users' group.
Have a good one.
In short, ensure that this group is only added to the appropriate roles for the project in question.
JIRA has some default roles and permissions associated with those roles via the permission scheme.
Go to your project settings, select Users and Roles, and then add the group to the appropriate roles. Remove this group from the roles on the other projects.
Does this help?
Often users get access because the 'jira-user' group, which they need to be in to be able to logon, is given access to projects. In my opinion, that group should never be used in a permission scheme. Eventually someone will have access they shouldn't.
