How can a user in Jira list all projects in which they don’t have permission to view?

Is there a way to list all the projects a user doesn’t have access to (or in general all the projects in Jira) so they know what projects are there in the instance they need to request permission to view a project?    The issue being, if they don’t know if a project exists how would they know to request permission to an existing project or request a project to be created.

Hi, no, user who doe not have permission to browse project cannot see this project. You could implement a plugin which will list the projects using ProjectsManager. This method does not care about current user's permissions.

Users in JIRA administrator group can view the list of projects in Projects configuration on {BASE_URL}/secure/project/ViewProjects.jspa
