How to find all projects where a group has a role?

There is a standard way to check using a group in all permission schemes. But is there a way to check using a group in all projects' roles?

Try this Groovy script using script console

import com.atlassian.jira.bc.projectroles.ProjectRoleService;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project;
import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager;

StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
ProjectManager projectManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager();
ProjectRoleService projectRoleService = (ProjectRoleService) ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(ProjectRoleService.class);
ProjectRoleManager projectRoleManager = (ProjectRoleManager) ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(ProjectRoleManager.class);

final Collection<ProjectRole> projectRoles = projectRoleManager.getProjectRoles();
for(Project project : projectManager.getProjectObjects())
    for(ProjectRole projectRole: projectRoles)
        final ProjectRoleActors projectRoleActors = projectRoleManager.getProjectRoleActors(projectRole, project);
        for (RoleActor actor : projectRoleActors.getRoleActors()) {
                output.append(project.getKey()).append(" : ").append(projectRole.getName()).append(" : ").append(actor.getDescriptor()).append("\n");
return output.toString();

Hi Renjith,

Thank you very much!

I hope this ready feature will be added to the next JIRA version.



Hi Ivan,

Currently, it is not possible to check a group has specific project roles in all projects. You can raise a new feature request for this at and vote for it. In order to be implemented, it must meet certain levels according to our Implementation of new features policy.

Best Regards,


Hi Steven,

Thank you, I will.
