Recently a bunch of atlassian addon projects showed up in our Issue Assignee list - unfortunately at the top of the list.
I found the atlassian-addons-project-access role in the permissions for Assignable User. Can I just remove it, or will that (potentially) break something?
Take a look at Add-on permissions update:
When you install or update an add-on, JIRA will automatically grant the add-on the correct permissions for its scope through the atlassian-addons-project-access role. It will also check the permissions of existing add-ons across all JIRA and JIRA Service Desk projects, and grant them the correct permissions as well.
How does the atlassian-addons-project-access role use project permissions?
When you install an add-on, JIRA creates a corresponding ‘user’ who is assigned to the atlassian-addons-project-access role in each project. If you don’t want the add-on to have access to a project, you can remove it from the role. Additionally, JIRA always respects add-on scopes over permissions. This means that add-ons only have access to the APIs defined by their scopes, and only have permission to perform the actions defined by their scopes.
Hopefully that clears things up a bit.
I understand why it's doing that, I'm just wondering what the repurcussions are if I undo a bit of it. Unless Jira App for Chat can fix bugs for me, I don't see why we would ever assign any issues to it, but maybe that's needed behind the scenes for some other reason. Is it going to break anything if I remove that one permission?
