How to configure permissions scheme per project ?

Hi guys,

Maybe this is a bit silly question for some of you, but i have already spent quite a lot of time and didnt figure out how to solve it.

I have few projects and few users in my Jira. Groups i am using default: jira-users, jira-developers, ...

If i want user to be able to login than i have to assign him to jira-users group, but than such user is able to see ALL defined projects, which is not allowed. I want to assigned users per project. So user who belongs to project is able to perform actions according to his role in a project (developer, tester, ....) but i dont want him to see other projects.

How can I achieve this ? Any ideas ?

Thanks and regards,

Use project roles in the permission scheme and different users/groups to the roles in individual projects.

Thanks. I have solved it with your help!


I am a bit confused. I am trying to create an environemt where projects are assigned to certain customers. In other words, when a customer logs I want them to see only their projects.

Is that possible?

PS I am using JIRA 6



What you have is a question. Not an answer. So I converted it to a comment. You can create it as a new question if you would like.

Yes it is possible. You need to use project roles and set permission schemes accordingly. Refer to the links provided by Jobin

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
