Hi @TanmaySharan 

This project role is automatically created when you use Jira Software. It's created with software development teams in mind and is used in the default software permission schemes.

It exists in any Jira Software instance (except if it was deleted by the administrators).

Kind regards

Appreciate your response @Jorden Van Bogaert 

I had actually deleted this a few weeks back. But, it came back on its own. So, was wondering.

Hi @TanmaySharan 

Does anyone else have admin access on your Jira cloud instance?

No one else, other than me.

Hi @TanmaySharan 

Mm, I don't have an immediate response then. It may have been recreated because of an add-on that needs it, or because of an inconsistency on Atlassian's end, but it's hard to say for sure.

I don't think Atlassian automatically restores this role for any reason, so I think you can safely remove it again. If it were to appear once more, maybe create a ticket with Atlassian to see if they can help find out why it returns.

Kind regards

Appreciate your response @Jorden Van Bogaert . Will remove it for now, and log a ticket if it re-appears. Thanks again !!

Hello @TanmaySharan ,

As mentioned by @Jorden Van Bogaert , the system has some default groups, system administrator can maintain this part of the information in System ---> Project Role Browser.

Project roles are somewhat similar to groups, the main difference being that group membership is global whereas project role membership is project-specific. Additionally, group membership can only be altered by Jira administrators, whereas project role membership can be altered by project administrators.

Appreciate your response @Ollie Guan_携程 . As mentioned in my reply to @Jorden Van Bogaert , I was surprised as it came back after I had deleted it a few weeks back.
