I have JIRA so that some projects are hidden (once complete), using a permission scheme. However since JIRA updated, these projects are now visible on my main project page. What setting do I need to amend to remove this so I only see active, non hidden projects?
I have tried to removed all permissions on a permission scheme and I can still see them. I am an administrator for the system, but I dont want to have to scroll through all old projects to find the one I am interested in.
Hello @Matthew Weatherburn
Currently, there is no way in JIRA to hide or Archive the project
The only way is to remove "read-only/ Browse project" permission from the project and that way the project is hidden from all users except the admins.
If you have admin rights then in the project list you will see all the projects. Tom improve your experience you can map each project to a proper category so that you don't have to scroll across each and every project much like what Atlassian has done on their website.
(category selection on the left hand side)
This is definitely a new "change" by the new interface that we can't do anything about anymore. I've submitted like 3 feedback on the Project screens.
The problem you described is exactly my problem. I'm surprised why there aren't many more people discussing this! What am I missing!??
As an Admin, I understand why I can see the Archived projects when I go to the System Projects screen, but I agree with you guys. I don't think they should show up on the regular Jira Projects list screen. They don't need to be visible in both places, particularly since you can't actually access the project from the regular Jira Projects list. If you click on the project there, it tells you "This Project isn't available", so why show it?
I am still seeing it on core @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] I had simply rolled back the new version, however it now seems it has been forced upon me. Is there anything I can do except adding ZZZ to the beginning of each project name? Whats the best way to shout at JIRA to make them fix the bug?
Chiming in here, this is still occurring on Cloud. This seems to be a regression from Atlassian's own documentation for how to hide a project: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver073/archiving-a-project-861253768.html?_ga=2.130723471.1643687562.1528167213-543610497.1512754475
It's worth mentioning: my users cannot see this -- but I can as an administrator.
I can confirm the current behavior is what's documented for Cloud. This info is directly from our Cloud documentation:
As an admin, you will still be able to see hidden projects. People without admin permissions will not be able to see hidden projects.
There is an open feature request to change this behavior. I'd recommend watching and voting for that issue!
