How do I allow 3 users to view an Archived Project? they are not admins

How do I allow 3 users to view an Archived Project? they are not admins but the projects are archived and they need to see some of the past tickets in Jira.

Do i change their access and if so how ?

Or

what should i do to the project level? if anything ?

one way - create a group, e.g. "archived-viewers" and add the group to the Browse permission for the Archive scheme. This is assuming that you are "archiving" projects by creating an archive permission scheme and removing all access except for admins.

Unfortunately, I didn't do any of this archiving it was done by someone before me, however, it looks like all access to archived projects is just for admins.  Would i add the group to each of the projects that is currently archived, too?

what do you mean by archived? Are they all on the same permission scheme?

ok i just created an archived-viewers group. 

the projects that they need access to Are Archived, EXCEPT Not all archived projects should they see. 

...are you on Jira Cloud, or Jira Server? Server has the archive project functionality, but I didn't think Cloud did yet. 

Also, check the permission scheme the archived projects are on... if they're on the same scheme, then you can just add the group to the 'browse issues' permission, or you can add them as a project role with 'browse issues' permission in the archived projects they need to see.
