Is there a way to see all the project roles a specific group has?

We have dozens of JIRA projects and groups. I'd like to be able to know for one group all the roles it's been given in all of the projects without going into each project to check.

Happy to have SQL query to answer this.

Thanks!

SELECT pname as "PROJECT", PROJECTROLE.name as "ROLE", ROLETYPEPARAMETER as "GROUP"  FROM "PROJECTROLEACTOR"  JOIN PROJECTROLE on PROJECTROLE.id=PROJECTROLEACTOR.PROJECTROLEID JOIN project on project.id=PROJECTROLEACTOR.pid where roletype='atlassian-group-role-actor' and ROLETYPEPARAMETER='jira-users'

You have to change the ROLETYPEPARAMETER to the name of the group you're searching for.

What database are you running and what version of JIRA. I've tested the query agains 6.2

I've used that plugin to execute the query and it works - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.sysadmin.homedirectorybrowser

My results:

jira=#  SELECT pname as "PROJECT", PROJECTROLE.name as "ROLE",
jira-# ROLETYPEPARAMETER as "GROUP"  FROM "PROJECTROLEACTOR"
jira-#  JOIN PROJECTROLE on PROJECTROLE.id=PROJECTROLEACTOR.PROJECTROLEID
jira-# JOIN project on project.id=PROJECTROLEACTOR.pid
jira-#  where roletype='atlassian-group-role-actor' and ROLETYPEPARAMETER='jira-users';
ERROR:  relation "PROJECTROLEACTOR" does not exist
LINE 2: ROLETYPEPARAMETER as "GROUP"  FROM "PROJECTROLEACTOR"

Did I take the query too literally?

Here's a query I've tested on postgresql and it works:

select * from projectroleactor
INNER join projectrole on (projectrole.id=projectroleactor.projectroleid)
INNER join project on (project.id=projectroleactor.pid)
where roletype='atlassian-group-role-actor' and projectroleactor.roletypeparameter='jira-users'

Shweet!! Thank you. I'm surprised the database structure would vary between mySQL and Postgresql. Or is it the format of the sql itself that had to change?

It is just the format of the sql, not the structure.

Much obliged. We will use this often!

We just upgraded to 6.3.7 from 6.2.7. Did something change? The above no longer works.

Boris, can you give me an updated select that works for 6.3.7?

A workaround would be to find a user that is part of that role, go to the View Project Roles and then Edit Project Roles for User and it will show if a group is mapping that user to a project role and will name the group.
