Jira: How to show all user groups membership in user profile?


When an administrator looks in some user profile, all groups in which user is a member of, are visible. But when ordinary ( not admin ) user checks someone else profile, the only visible groups are jira predefined. Is it possible to allow all users to see everyone's groups membership in user profile page?

Was recently trying to figure this out myself and found this post.

From what I can tell, visibility of group membership on another user's profile is restricted to the groups that the viewing user also has.

So, if user1 belongs to groupA, groupB and groupC, and user2 belongs to groupA, groupB... then when user2 views user1's profile he will only see groupA and groupB listed.

I guess this is done for "security" reasons, but I'm with you, I'd like to let all users see everyone's groups.

Are those groups define in crowd?

What do you mean "defined in Crowd"? These groups are created in Jira.


Users can view when access is given from crowd.

We use Jira with external LDAP autorization, but the groups are manualy created in Jira, and users are added from administrators.

( Read Only, with Local Groups - Users, groups and memberships are retrieved from your LDAP server and cannot be modified in JIRA. Users from LDAP can be added to groups maintained in JIRA's internal directory. )

As an admin user (NOT system admin) how can I list the members of a group? (I mean how to list the group members from groups I belong to).

I guess its still an open issue?
