Set all users to read-only

We are about to convert from JIRA onDemand to JIRA on-premisis.

After the conversion, I plan to keep the onDemand instance around for a few days incase there is some question about the data that was converted. I will change the banner, etc., in the old system to warn people not to make changes.

But it would be better if I could make the whole thing read-only. The new and old instances will look very much alike. I don't want some product owner spending several hours updating a project before discovering that s/he was doing so in the old instance.

Ideas anyone?

You can do it with the permission schemes. Make sure you remove pretty much all permissions except the Browse permissions and you should be fine.

I set up a permission scheme called Viewers. But when I toggle the projects to it, no one can see anything.

But I'm giving up. I just made sure everyone understands no to make edits in the old version.
