Customize project roles

Project roles are a flexible way to associate users and/or groups with particular projects. Project roles also allow for delegated administration: Team-managed software projects come with three roles by default but in the following section, you’ll learn how to create your own custom roles.

Before you begin

  • You need to be a Jira Product Discovery Admin.


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

  2. Click Create role and fill in the fields then, select what the people in that role can do.

  3. Once you’ve edited the role details click Create.
