Temporary Access to Administrative functions

Hi,

  I want to give Admin Permissions to a User only for a certain period of time (say a day or two)? How do I do that in Jira and Confluence?

If I am not wrong, once I do this, the user will shown a warning on top of the page saying "You have temporary access to Administrative functions.  Drop access...."

thanks,

naag

Hi Naag,

The message you're thinking of is actually when a user who already has administrative permissions, tries to perform an administrative task.

Then Jira gives the user access via a secure session for a default amount of time, and this is when they see the message. See Configuring Secure Administrative Sessions.

To give a user admin permissions for a certain period of time you would need to edit the Jira and Confluence Global permissions and actually give them administrative access. When you don't want them to have it anymore, you can remove the access.

See Jira - Managing global permissions and Confluence - Global permissions overview.

Kind Regards,
Shannon
