How can I set Project Permissions?


I have two projects (1 and 2), and three groups (A, B and C).

Project 1 should only be accessible for A and C, not for B
Project 2 shoud only be accessible for B and C, not for A

Where can I set project access?

Go into the project users and remove the "JIRA users" group from the roles.  That stops "everyone who can log in can see your project"

Now put groups A and C into the users role in project 1, and B (and C?  I think you've miskeyed there) into project 2.

You write: "go into the project users",... how do I get there?

Feeling really stupid over here! Back again:

So with the link you have send me, I can assign project roles.

It is still not clear to me how I (ie) can give access to project 1 for groups A and C

What does that have to do with roles?


The permission scheme is a set of rules that says "grant access to this project to people who match this rule". Most people don't start playing with them until they've messed around with project users a bit first, and I was assuming you haven't either. If that's true, then you have the default scheme which includes a rule that says "allow access to people in the role of 'user'". So adding groups A and C to the role of 'user' in project 1 works out to "give access to everyone in A and C to project 1"

(Don't feel stupid, the layers of rules in Jira like this one is powerful, flexible and leads to quite a barrage of complex new stuff when you first encounter them. Took me ages to get how roles work when they arrived in 3.6 and I still get screen-schemes wrong almost every time I try to do anything clever with them)
