How do I assign certain users to certain projects?

I am using the Atlassian-hosted version of Jira. I am the administrator. I see how to invite users in the User Management area. However, it appears that all users can then access all projects. I will have multiple projects with different users who need to access each one (and more importantly, users who should not be able to access certain projects). How do I set up the specific users for specific projects?

I do see when I enter a project, and go into Administration and then Roles, that there is a field for adding users to each role. I thought this would be the way to accomplish what I need. However, even with NO users added to the User role for that particular project, my users are still able to access that project when they login.

Thanks so much for the help!

You should take a look at the permission scheme of the project. For example, if the "browse project" permission has been granted to the "jira-user" group everone in that group can see the issues of that project. You should assign that permission to the role "users".

Take a look at the documentation:
