Manage your teams project access

In the project access section, you can define the default project access for people with access to the Jira site where the discovery project lives, as well as defining the level of access for specific users and groups.

Before you begin

  • You need to be a Jira Product Discovery Admin to change these settings.

Default project access

Jira Product Discovery supports two types of users who are configured by a site administrator in the Directory:

  • Creators: Users with product access to Jira Product Discovery (licensed users). They can use all features based on the access they're given in each project.

  • Contributors: Users without Jira Product Discovery product access are called contributors (unlicensed users). They can only use a subset of features, for example open ideas and views in read-only mode with the ability to vote and comment.

Project access for specific users or groups


To change your project's access:

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

  2. Under Default project access, select Change project access.

  3. Choose the level of access you want to give and select Change.

Your project access level sets who can search, view, and edit the project and its issues across your Jira site.

Team-managed software projects have three, simple access levels:

  • Private - When a project is private, only Jira admins and people you add to the project can see it in their project directory or its issues in search results.

  • Limited - When a project is limited, anyone on your Jira site can view and comment on issues in your project. But, they can't edit them or create new ones. With this access level, Jira gives anyone who logs into your Jira site the Viewer role in your project.

  • Open - When a project is open, anyone on your Jira site can view, create and edit issues in your project. With this access level, Jira gives anyone who logs into your Jira site the Member role in your project.
