We have migrated from onDemand to on-premisis. We are trying to use active directory to manage users. But the users from the server don't seem to work right.
I have read the instructions here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Project+Permissions#ManagingProjectPermissions-permission_schemes
All projects use the "Default Permission Scheme."
The DPS uses the standard project Roles: Administrators, Developers, Users
The Administrator, Developer and User roles each contain the user "georgec" – which is a windows account.
But when I log in as "georgec" I can see no projects. When I display my Project Roles, none are defined.
What am I missing?
There are a few "usual suspects" for issues like this that you should check -
If you double-check these but still can't see any projects, there might be something harder to debug involved. You should take this issue to the support team then - https://support.atlassian.com/secure/Dashboard.jspa
Just noticed this note on the "Edit Default Members for Project Role" page:
NOTE: When a new project is created, it will be assigned these 'default members' for the 'Users' project role. Note that 'default members' apply only when a project is created. Changing the 'default members' for a project role will not affect role membership for existing projects.
So I read that as saying if I add a new person or group to a role used in the Default Scheme, it won't get used. That is, in fact, what I am seeing.
Seems kind of short sited.
I agree that you should be able to do that. But here is what I see:
Default Scheme uses roles, for example "user"
I put a new Active Directory group in the "user" role, but the members don't get access to the project.
What I have to do assign the group to each appropriate permission.
Users must be added to project roles manually. This is due to the fact, that the projectteam is likely to change for different project. Also you can add default members (users or groups) for project roles.
What You are most likely missing is the mapping of users to project roles. to do this go to project administartion, "peoples" tab and ad dthe user "georgec" to any of the roles.
Hope that helps? Cheers, David
