You need to look at the permission schemes. They tell the projects who can do what (including see issues)
One you've read the permission scheme you should now have a grasp of the rules. Because they will say things like "Browse: role (users), role (developers" - that means any user OR group placed in the role in the project will get access
So then you need to go into the projects and add the right users and groups to the roles.
Your permissions are quite flat - person can log in = person can see everything. You'll need to make sure the "can log in group" is named in either every project (sensible) or you could explicitly name them in the permission schemes (Which is a monumental pain in the neck to unravel when you realise you didn't mean it)
I understand almost nothing of this.
Project Role Name "Users" use the Default Permission scheme which has all my projects associated.
The Default Permission Scheme looks ok, and it is the Project role "Project Role (Users)" or (in some cases the "Project Role (Developers)" with extended rights) I want all my users to have.
The Jira permission "Jira Users" looks ok and is connected to the group "jira_users".
The group "jira_users" has all my users as members.
So, if I only could connect "jira_users" to the Project Role Name "Users" it would work??? How do I do that?
The permission schemes give a Jira project rules about who can do things in the project. As you've just got one default permission scheme, that makes this a lot more simple.
You've given us most of the information we need in that comment, but the one most important thing is missing.
What does the permission scheme actually say for "Browse project"?
(Remember, this is NOT global permissions, which you have also given us details on, this is the permission scheme for the projects)
So, now, you need to put the users you want to have access into the role of Users for *every* project.
The easiest way to do this is just add "jira users" group into the role
And then for the future, you can also edit the role and add "jira users" group as a default, so that new projects will automatically have it there when they are created.
Yes, that's the "explicitly name them in the permission scheme" I suggested earlier.
Which is simplistic and means you can't delegate user maintenance to project owners, and it's a pain to unpick if you don't really want it later. But it will do the job
I don't know that it really is that complex.
One thing I find helps is to ignore the masses of possible things to do. Pick one (like "Can see project") and get that right first.
You need to give the user Project Permissions according to your needs (e.g. browse project / create issues, etc). You may either assign their permission directly on the project, or preferably using permission schemes.
The document below explains how you may achieve this:
As I want the new users to access everything (all projects, and see all issues, and be ready to be assigned issues for any project), I guess I want all new users I create to get global permissions. But when I log in with my (admin) account and follow the instructions and set the Jira permission "Jira Users" to jira_users (the only group there is and to which all our users are connected (also the ones I have created) nothing happens. If I log in to our Jira as a newly created user I still don't see anything. I don't understand how to proceed.
