How do I create a read only group for a user? The fact that they are in the JIRA Users group will give them certain rights, correct? Do I change the permissions on JIRA Users, or is there a better way to administer this?
I guess what you meant by read only group is to have a set of users that are able to only view issues without the permission to perform other tasks like commet or add attachmentss right? In that case I will advice you create a group in JIRA say "read-only", associate that group to the JIRA user global permission so that they can atleast have access to JIRA (Log in to JIRA). You can then configure project permission scheme in such a way that read-only group is granted only the "browse project" permissions
You are most welcome. Actually there is no much need to make muh changes to the project permissions scheme in that users that belong to the jira-userss group will continue to enjoy their priviledges. You just need to add the read-only group to the browse project permission and ensure that the affected users only belong to the read-only group.
