If I go to Users and roles in a specific project, I see 3 default project roles: administrators, developer, and users.
my question is if I don't associate users with these roles the default is that these roles are empty or that they associate with the default groups: administrators, developers, and users?
What happens if I associate users to a role the default values is overwritten?
It's between "these roles are empty or that they associate with the default groups: administrators, developers, and users".
Jira makes no association between roles and groups that might happen to have the same name.
Jira does however have "default members" for roles. If you go to admin -> roles, then you'll find the list of roles has space for default users and groups. These are used only when a new project is created though, and you can remove them after creating the project, they really are just "templates".
Thank you, Nic that was very helpful.
by the way, it's under admin->system->project roles.
So if I want to change this default project roles members, I should specify project roles for each project?
For example, if I add a user to project role administrator for a specific project it will then overwrite the default members for an administrator?
Whole configuration is based on 'Project permission scheme'. If you set up a specific permission per group (not per project role), this group will have the permission accross all projects...
User can have several roles, that means, you can have one person in Project role 'Developer' and this person can be at the same time in the group 'administrator'. This won't be overwritten.
Hope this will help you,
