In the "users and roles" section of a project, a project administrator can manage the groups/users assigned to the roles.
Is it possible to restrict the groups/users a project administrator can use to add to the available roles?
Here is the use case:
Can I restrict a project administrator from adding an external group to his project?
This should be possible only by the general JIRA administrator for security reasons because internal projects contain critical information not to be disclosed in any way to external users.
PS: the same question goes for specific external users instead of groups.
I am afraid not. The permissions to see and use groups is not that granular. There are a few cases where it will limit a user to only be able to use groups that they belong to, but that is about it for now. I hear atlassian are looking at this, but I don't expect it to change soon. is about it.
