I am setting up a new Kanban board that my internal design team and freelancers will use.
I need my freelance designers to be able to view only their own assigned tasks, I do not want them to be able to see what tasks the other freelancers or internal design team are working on. Is this possible to restrict this?
FYI: I want my myself and the internal design team to be able to view all tasks that are listed in this same Kanban board. No restriction.
Use issue level security scheme. Just make sure the freelance designers aren't in another group or role that allows them to view it.
It should be restricted on the project permission scheme level. Delete the Browse Issues permission for the freelancers group and grant the Browse Issues permission to Assignee. In this case the freelancers group will able to see only issues, assigned to them.
Hi @Alexey Matveev _cPrime_, I have still not solved the issue but your insight has really guided me in the right direction.
One question. I found the "project permissions" in the project. I can make changes to what a user can do to a task, but I can't work out how to make it so that a user can only see tasks that are assigned to them only.
Can you give me more insight into how I can make this happen?
If you grant the Browse Issues permission to Assignee (there is such a choice). Then only the Assignee of a ticket will be able to see the issue. If you have a role, which also has to see all issues, you can grant this role the Browse Issues permission as well.
Hello, can anybody help me ? I am trying to follow the instructions how to configure JIRA-Software so that user belonging to particular group is limited to see only assigned to him task on KANBAN board, but do not understand what/where should I do, I am looking for step-by-step instructions.
I strongly suggest you stop using groups and use project roles. It provides much better granularity
JIRA works by GRANTING access. You can't restrict access. By default, it grants access to the group used to logon (see Global permissions to see the "can use" groups and admin groups). This is where users are getting their access.
This may be a big effort, but it will pay off down the road by making it easy to control access.
Most of the 'old timers' use project roles. It meets the best practice for security and gives complete control to the project lead for access to their project. JIRA comes with many project roles, but you can add more if you have a special need.
1. I have only jira-administrators and jira-software-users, those 2 are default built-in groups and of course they must be there and have logon privileges. I do not understand how it is possible for anybody to use Kanban table without Logon privileges ?
2. I need only one Project Role, I created role "Users" in JIRA/System, of course there is another one built-in Administrators that is present in the system. But this is not related to the Project, I cannot add the Users role to a Project, at least do not know how to do it. There is only one default role there
3. I cannot find where can I bind roles with projects, permissions, etc.
I am sorry, too many questions from my side...
