Anyone who have browse permission to a project can see it. So if you have 20 projects and someone only has browse in 5 that is all they see.

I have two project that use the same permission scheme.  The permission scheme uses roles. 

External project manager is a role, that has browse project permission.

In the first project, there is no one assigned to the external project manager role.

In the 2nd project, george is assigned as the external project manager.


For some reason, George can see  the first project, in the project list (bad).  He cannot see the issues (good). He can also see the 2nd project in the list, and sees the issues on that project (good).


Why can he see the first project, when he has no role assignment on that project?

He is probably getting it through a group or other role he has. I've seen similar questions lots of times over the years and it always ends up they get the permission a way you don't expect or is easy to find.
