Getting a Full Picture of the Project Roles in Jira

Project members may need different levels of access rights to perform their daily tasks. It is recommended that you group these project members under roles based on their responsibilities within the project. Thus, you can come up with a simplified and more secure user-access management process enabling you have a better control over the functions and information provided by whatever tool or software you are using.

For Jira, you can use built-in Project Roles feature to create roles for your project and assign users and/or groups to these roles. It provides a flexible way to manage your users and their permissions within your project.

Project administrators can see all project roles and modify them whenever needed. Sometimes, project members may need to see who else is working on the same project or may need to know who is assigned for what role. However, by default Jira project roles are only visible to project administrators and project members cannot see who has which role in the project.

For this exact need, we, as Bloompeak team, developed Project Role Tab for Jira Cloud which introduces an additional tab to the project dashboard named "Project Roles". It displays the project roles and assigned users/groups to these roles within your project. Thus, any project member can get a full picture of the project roles via the project dashboard that they are working on.

We hope you find this article helpful on giving some insights on project roles in Jira.


Sounds interesting, thanks for sharing!
