JIRA Permissions

When creating a new project with new personnel, is there any way to only give select new people permission to the new project without having to go and change all other projects?

These has to be an easier way to do this.

You can maybe create a user group dedicated to this project, then restrict project to this new group. I guess this is faster than changing all users permissions.

Chris, maybe you could create a new permission scheme exclusively for that project as well, and make it such that only the new personnel has permission in the new project using the new permission scheme.

If you have admin privileges, you can add specific users particular roles on the project. Go to administration->roles. You can add particular users here as well as groups of users.

Maybe you can set up an issue security scheme for that project: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Issue-level+Security

Is there any way to do this by default? Or, so I need to create a new security scheme for every new project I create, it I want to restrict it members.

There has to be soe way to do this out of the box.
