Check if your Jira is set up for the default access, and if it is, you need to remodel your access rights. (The default model is to use "jira users" group to log in, but then ALSO use it to put people in the role of "user" in all projects. Which means if you can log in, you can see all the projects automatically. You need to un-pick that - remove "Jira users" from ALL roles in ALL projects, replacing it with some other access for users who do need to get into a project, and only use Jira-users to say "can log in")

Once you have a proper access model, then you can simply add this user to jira-users and then add him to a read-only role in the project(s) he needs to see.

Little confusing.Can you please explain it in detail?

Already did!

Look at your permission schemes first, they will probably say things like "Browse: Role: Users"

If you are using the default setup of a Jira, you will find that this causes problems for you because it uses the group "Jira users" to say "user can log in", and then puts the same group in every Role: Users in every project. So anyone who can log in automatically gets to see all the projects.

You need to undo that. Remove "jira users" from all projects, so that it ONLY means "can log in" and NOTHING else. e
