I have an existing project that is fully operational. I have set up a new project which will have a couple of members, these members should only have access to this new project.
This is what I have done till now to try and accomplish this
1.) Created the new project
2.) Created the new users and gave them developer and users role explicitly
3.) Created a new group called restrictedgroup with these users
4.) Gave this group the JIRA Users and Browse users permissions via the global permissions
This has restricted the users but they dont seem to have the ability to create issues, why is that? How do I rectify this?
No, you should configure the project permission instead (to grant the create issue permission), take a look at this https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Project+Permissions.
By the way, this is very similar to https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/HOWTO:+Secure+Projects+Between+Groups+and+Teams, but as for Atlassian OnDemand, you need to grant this user an application access in addition.
thanks. I didnt realize that was what I was doing until your comment Nic. Sorry, I was being a little dense. Messing with the existing project just makes me nervous. Btw, the article by Azwandi is nice with screenshots. Though I dont know what this means - "for Atlassian OnDemand, you need to grant this user an application access in addition."
What does application access mean and how do i do that?
Application access is the fundamental permission in Atlassian OnDemand. Without it, a user can't even login to the instance. See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AOD/Managing+application+access.
