Prevent Jira from adding every user to new projects

When creating new projects in Jira every user is added to this project. We would rather like to add users explicitly, more so when allowing clients to view the project since client A should obviously not be able to view the project concerning client B.

Go to Admin -> Roles and remove the default users from the roles.

Marcus, it sounds like you need two separate security schemes for these projects.  I recommend creating a new security group for each project and assigning those security groups the correct permissions for the two new schemes you created.  Add specific users to each group and they will only have access to the projects they are supposed to have access too.

Would I need to create an issue security scheme for every client we'll work with or will something along the lines of

  • "Company Internal" for every associate of our company
  • "External Client" for every client

do the trick?

Or are we not talking issue security but rather permissions?
