Limitations of teams in open planning sites

This page refers to the advanced planning features that are only available as part of Jira Cloud Premium and Enterprise.

We have a separate section for documentation about the project timeline that’s included in Jira. Go to the documentation for the project timeline in Jira.


An open site is site that anyone can access without administrator approval – including those outside your organization. Sometimes, this is done intentionally, or it can be a result of misconfigured site access settings. Find out how to restrict access to your site.

Depending on how your administrator configures them, teams in your Jira site can either be a global entity that can be used and viewed across all of your organization’s other Atlassian sites or restricted to only specific Jira sites.

To protect sensitive team data (e.g. - team names), users viewing an open Jira site can only see these organization-wide teams if they also have access to a restricted site in the same organization. Conversely, users that can only access open sites won’t be able to see teams or assign issues to a team; they'll only be able to see and assign issues to plan-only teams. See what information is available on unrestricted sites.
