By default, all project admins can create and manage automation rules for their projects. To be a project admin, they’ll need the following permission:
Company-managed projects: Anyone with the Administer projects and Browse projects permissions can create and manage automation rules for their project. Learn more about permissions for company-managed projects
Team-managed projects: Anyone with Administrator access can create and manage automation rules for their project. Learn more about permissions for team-managed projects
Stop project admins from creating and managing automation rules for their project
Global admins can disable the ability for project admins to create and manage rules.
Select Global automation.
Select > Global configuration.
Use the dropdown to choose specific users and groups, or uncheck Allow project administrators to manage project rules to remove the ability for project admins to create and manage rules for their projects.
Anyone who has the Administer Jira global permission can create and manage automation rules across all of Jira. Learn more about global permissions in Jira Cloud.
Admins with the Administer Jira global permission can:
