Hi @Donna Grare ,

you need to provide application access to your employee ( and provide just "Browse Project" permission on all your projects.

Hope this helps,


Fabio - I do not have a group that is R/O to add them to. I have jira-administrator, jira-developers and jira-software.  I do not see where I can add a new group and call it jira-readonly



Hi @Donna Grare ,

please read this guide in order to create a local group with JIRA ( ). After doing that you can add your user to your group and go ahead with other tasks.
