When setting up a new project, JIRA adds the same random selection of users to the project by default. Almost all of these people have nothing to do with the project, and almost all aren't even employed by our company. I can't find anywhere on the site where these users appear as a group, or as a default group.
Anybody know why this is, and how I can stop it from happening?
Thanks in advance
You don't. All roles exist in a project automatically.
I'd remove the users from the default roles myself. I try to keep the defaults to a minimum safe set, which generally means "internal users", never customers or clients, for fear of adding them to the wrong projects by accident.
The issue is the groups being given default access to new projects don't appear to have any access... at least can't see any setting that says they do.
The groups in question don't say anywhere that they have permissions for anything whatsoever. There's even users being pulled in by default that belong to groups that don't seem to exist!
