Standardizing default user groups?

We currently have an inconsistent mix of former and new default user groups, including:


Currently, when creating a new user, the only default groups they are added to are confluence-users and jira-users.

If we remove the "users" group, will anyone in confluence-users / jira-users still have access to permissions granted to "users" within the respective application?

Also, we want to add developers as a default group when users are invited. How can this be done?

No.  If you remove a group, then it's gone, along with everything it granted.  Because it's not there any more.

To put new users into a group by default, add them to the "can use" permission in global permissions, then when you add them, they'll take the group

Ahh... I definitely won't remove the old default group then :)

I found where to set default groups under Site admin > Application access > View configuration where you can then make groups default or non-default per application. So now I have all old and new groups set to default.

The global permissions looks to be for JIRA only but still useful for defining permissions for each group... I will look into it. Thanks for the suggestion.
