I am trying to create an overview of JIRA user concept. Can someone please entlighten me what issue role is and if there is any difference between issue role and current assignee?
Hi @Saengrawee Klamdam ,
Welcome to community!
Project roles are a flexible way to associate users and/or groups with particular projects.Project roles are somewhat similar to groups, the main difference being that group membership is global whereas project role membership is project-specific.
Each issue has a current assignee, which means who is responsible for the issue.
There is no "issue role". Do you mean "project role"?
A project role is a container that goes across all projects, but separated by project, and can be used to allocate users (individuals or groups) into projects, then used by permissions and notification to allow or do various things.
For example, you might put Alice into the role of "developer" in project A, Bob into "developer" in project B, and Charlie into it in project C, and then never use it in project D.
"current assignee" is the primary individual currently responsible for the issue
Hello, thank you for your prompt reply. I found this on https://support.atlassian.com/jira-service-desk-cloud/docs/overview-of-jira-cloud-permissions/
and it states in the diagram issue role (assignee). That's why I would like to know the definition of it.
thanks so much.
