can you create project roles specific to a project?

can you create project roles for a specific project? for example, if i want to create a IT project I want it to have only IT related roles(helpdesk , SA or DBA) in this project only can that be done? I dont want those roles to show up in other projects. I could not find anywhere how to do this maybe they need to add a scheme for this?

No, the whole point of a role is that it goes across all projects.  It gets unnecessarily complex if you start trying to limit them to sets of projects.  

If you don't want to use a role in a project, don't put anyone in it.  Just educate your project owners as to which are useful (assuming you've got differing permission/notification/workflow schemes)

thank you that makes sense.

Roles are used in workflows or permission schemes. Instead of a role you can use a transition, whose condition should be a specific (project) group.

No, but you don't need to put anyone in them.

The day to day problem with using groups is only JIRA admins can manage group membership, whereas the project lead can manage users assigned to roles in their project. If your staff membership and responsibility doesn't change much this may not be an issue with you. In larger organizations people are swapped in and out of projects or the staff and having to funnel everything through the JIRA admin is a pain.

But it works :)
