Project Roles - Basic Setup

First time user/administrator of JIRA and I have a basic project role questions. I have the following Project Roles setup:

  1. Administrators
  2. Developers
  3. Quality Assurance
  4. Users

I have created the following groups:

  1. Engineering --> assigned to Project Role: Developers
  2. QA --> assigned to Project Role: Quality Assurance

I have associated appropriate users with each group.

It seems that with this setup a user doesn't see a project unless their group (or individual) is also added to the Project Role: Users.

I had assumed that being in any group would imply they have access to the project.

Is this correct or have I made a mistake in setup.

Just users with the "Browse Project" Permission can see the project. It seems the roles "Developers" and "Quality Assurance" don't have this permission but "Users" have?!

Thanks! That was it and makes perfect sense. Appreciate the help as I learn JIRA!
