We used to be able to setup default groups for new users, but this seems to have gone away. Is that correct? I'm basically wanting most users to have access to everything in JIRA and Confluence, but we have vendors and executives that I want to restrict access for. Anyone have suggestions for the best way to admin this? I'm doing it with groups, just want to add another group to default for new users because this manual step keeps getting missed.
Please refer our documentation below regarding this matter. It should help you on this case!
To automatically add newly-created users to a particular group, you can either:
@Luciano Fagundes Please clarify how to do this on the current version. I'm running into the same issue as Artemis above. Used to be very easy to manage user permissions and groups but I am at a point where this seems impossible as an admin and none of the Jira docs explain the issue I'm running into.
Adding new client projects which require restricted access to their individual project ONLY! i.e. cannot be part of Jira-Users group
Please explain step by step how this works and what needs to be done. I am setup as an admin and developer so there should be no permissions restrictions.
You need to split your groups up.
The easiest way to achieve this (which hasn't really changed since Jira 3.6, although the default groups created by installing Jira 7 have) is not ideal, but quick:
Create a new login group and place everyone in it, add it to the "can log in" permission. Remove Jira-Users from "can log in". Remove your clients from jira-users, put them in their own group and then use that group in the roles that let them into their projects.
