You can use this query (PostgreSQL):

SELECT AS PermissionSchemeName,SP.perm_parameter AS GroupName, SP.permission_key AS Permission

FROM schemepermissions SP

INNER JOIN permissionscheme PS ON SP.scheme =

ORDER BY 1, 2, 3;

This should be the top answer. Thanks Daniel!

Hey there, Sameera.

Perhaps you can check on the following documentation. You might be able to find what you are looking for:

Warm regards,


Looking at the following Javadoc, I think this is not something we can query using SQL.

I forgot to add a justification to what I said above.

According to the Javadoc provided, all the permission items are actually integer constants. They seem to be hardcoded into JIRA so it is not possible to retrieve that information using SQL.
