I have created a new project in JIRA and would like to restrict some users to only have access to this new project. I am confused by the various options in project permissions. I want the users to have the exact same permissions as a default user would get in the first project, the only rule is that they only see their own new project and not the other project.
Sort of both.
Create a new permission scheme (copy the existing one if in doubt - you can already see how that behaves). You can then switch your project(s) to use the copy as you are working on it, and if you get anything wrong, swap back to the old one.
In the long run, yes, you will take away permissions from both projects and then gradually let people back in.
I actually created a new question as I had marked this as answered, not sure what the ettiquette is, I may delete the other one. This is what I did, I dont think i followed your instructions correctly
I have an existing project that is fully operational. I have set up a new project which will have a couple of members, these members should only have access to this new project.
This is what I have done till now to try and accomplish this
1.) Created the new project
2.) Created the new users and gave them developer and users role explicitly
3.) Created a new group called restrictedgroup with these users
4.) Gave this group the JIRA Users and Browse users permissions via the global permissions
This has restricted the users but they dont seem to have the ability to create issues, why is that? How do I rectify this?
Permissions in Jira are based on allowing people in, not locking them out.
You can't block a user from a project, what you have to do is lock *Everyone* out and then allow selected users in.
You're going to need to strip the permissions from your existing projects and rebuild them.
