Add people to your team or change project roles

Project roles are a flexible way to associate users and/or groups with particular projects.

  • Administrator. Admins can do most things, like update settings and add other admins to the project. They can manage features, customize issue types, and add rules on the board. Admins need product access to Jira Software to get the full benefit of this role.

  • Member. Members are a part of the team. They can create issues, edit them, comment on them, move them into different statuses, and generally collaborate on your project's work. Members need product access to Jira Software to get the full benefit of this role.

  • Viewer. Viewers can search through and view issues in your project, but not much else. You can give any registered user on your Jira site this role without extra product access.

Before you begin

  • You need to be a Jira Product Discovery Admin.

  • When you give someone a role. they inherit the role given by your project’s access:

    • In Open projects, everyone on your Jira site is given the default Member role.

    • In Limited projects, everyone on your Jira site is given the default Viewer role.

    • In Private projects, only Jira admins and people you add to the project have a role.

Steps

  1. From your project's sidebar, select Project settings > Access.

  2. Click Add people.

  3. Select the team member you want to add and their role then, Add.

  4. You can change the role anytime by going to the name of the person and changing the role under the role dropdown list.
