Hi, OnDemand doesn't allow custom plugins installed. It's a restricted function. Putting that aside, would this be a good idea? The reason it's an admin function is because it could cause a lot of potential problems.

What problem are you trying to solve exactly? I'm not sure if exposing this admin function would be a good idea.

I see a duplicate question, are you sure about the tags which you have applied to this question ?

By default export is allowed to all users who have read access to issues but import is only allowed to system admins.

I see your question is related to ondemand I don't think you would be able to that level of customization to ondemand.

If you are looking do it in jira standalone or you installation you can look at Jira importers plugin code that would be a good starting point.

Thanks Vishwajeet

I am trying to have the importer functionality for standalone jira. I am not getting how the access can be provided to all user instead of only to admin.

Request you to please suggest some documents.



As Harry Chan suggested it's not a good idea to expose the admin functions to all users, if you are certain what you are trying to do is right than you need to learn jira plugin development, you can start with same here

You would need a way to extend the above plugin and provide the functionality to all users.
