In the last 6 months, have signed up to Atlassians' JIRA Software product.
Atlassian hosts this for us.
I believe that means we have the *Cloud* version of the software.
I go to one of my permission schemes and look at who has been granted the right to "Browse Projects".
I can see that role called "Application Access > Any logged in user" has been granted access to "Browse Projects".
So, who exactly is "Any logged in user"?
* Is it any one who has an Atlassian Account and is logged in to JIRA Cloud (regardless of whether they are known to me or not)?, or
* Is it any one who is logged in to the instance of Jira Software that was set up when we signed up to the product?, or
* something else?
In order to understand the definition of "Any logged in user", I'd really like to know what thing is that they are logged in to.
It is the second one. Any user who is logged in to the instance you have signed up for. They are the users created by you or one of the other administrators and are counted towards your JIRA license.
Hope that clarifies!
I was going to mark this as the "accepted answer". But, before I do that I wanted to know how you know this. Can you point to some place in the official documentation where "Any logged in user" is defined as any user logged in to the instance. Or somehow provide some citation that backs up the answer. Ta.
I can't find a more current reference, however the term 'any logged in user' replaced 'JIRA User' in more recent versions. I found an older reference that uses JIRA User.
I'm wondering the same thing. Based on the above comments, I'm assuming that "Any logged in user" for my business and software projects are using a jira-software license and not a jira-servicedesk license.
I'm also wondering if on my non-service desk projects, if I can remove the "any logged in user" and then add the group I created specifically for that project, i.e. jira-project-name. Would this keep out those who have a jira-sofware license, who aren't in the specific projects?
It doesn't. See https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/service-desk/pricing
Customers are free and do not require a Jira Service Desk license. Anyone can create a service desk request and you'll never be limited to how many customers can access your service desk.
JIRA works by GRANTING access. You can't restrict access. By default, it grants access to the group used to logon (used to be JIRA-users but may be different on your version). This is where many users run into problems. They end up wanting to restrict access but the default of any logged in user grants everyone access.
This may be a big effort, but it will payoff down the road by making it easy to control access
In the past, Portfolio for Jira required a high degree of detail–foresight that was unrealistic for many businesses to have–in order to produce a reliable long-term roadmap. We're tur...
