Manage inherited permissions in plans

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

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


Users are automatically granted permissions based on their global Jira Software user group at the time of your site’s creation. It doesn’t automatically update if a group’s global permissions change at a later date, meaning you’ll need to use the instructions on this page to manually revoke a group’s plans permissions.

When your site is created, users with Jira Software administrator and site administrator access also have Plans administrator access by default, though this can be changed. If your plan includes team-managed projects, you’ll need Administrator or Editor permissions in those projects to make changes. If you only have Viewer permissions for a team-managed project, you’ll only be able to read the data from that project.

To add or remove a user group from your plan permissions:

  1. From the Jira Software main navigation, select > Products in the upper right of your screen.

  2. Select Permissions underneath Plans on the left side menu.

Learn more about the different permission types in plans.
