Restrict permission to a single project

Hello,

We have a user that needs to perform most of the administration functions (like configuring issues, screens, fields, workflows). We need to limit that user to a specific project. He may not have those administration functions for other projects.
How do we do that?

Thanks

Hey Victor,

In the permission settings for the project, you can enable Extended Project Administration permission. This allows project admins to do the following.

Gives the project administrator the ability to edit workflows and screens under certain conditions.

Restrictions for editing the project's workflows

  • The workflow must not be shared with any other projects, or be a system workflow.
  • To add a status, the status must already exist in the Jira instance i.e. the project admin can't create new statuses or edit existing statuses.
  • To delete a status, the status must not be used by any of the project's issues.
  • The project admin can create, update or delete transitions, but they can't select or update a screen used by the transition, or edit or view a transition's properties, conditions, validators or post-functions.


Restrictions for editing the project's screens

  • The screen must not be a default system screen.
  • The screen must not be shared with any other projects, or used as a transition screen in workflows.
  • The project admin can add, remove and rearrange system fields.
  • The project admin can add, remove and rearrange existing custom fields, but they cannot create custom fields.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that we are using Jira v6.4.14.

I cannot find the option to enable Extended Project Administration. Any idea if it exists in our version of Jira?

Hey @Victor Mozdzan 

If you take a look at this article, it looks like it was released in 7.3. You would need to update to get this feature. Unfortunately, there is no other solution for what you want to do. They would need full admin permission if you cant update.

Got it. I appreciate your help.
