As a project admin, you can add groups or individuals to various roles in your project. Roles are project-specific, so adding a group or individual user will only affect your project. You can also use the same process to remove access from groups or users. It's important to note that you can only add existing groups and users, and you need to be a Jira Work Management admin to create the groups or users.
Add a user to a project
In this step, you'll add one of your users (Emma) to the Administrators role, so she can help manage your project. You must be a project administrator to perform these steps.
This describes the process of adding users to classic projects. If you're in a next-gen project and don't see the People option in project settings, check out Add people to next-gen projects.
If you're not already in your project, select the Projects menu and locate your project.
- From your project's sidebar, select Project settings > People.
- Select Add people
- Search for Emma
You can add multiple people and groups, and delete those you have accidentally added in this dialog.
- Select the Administrators role and select Add
Emma will now have administrator access to your project. You can use the same process to add users or groups to the Administrators role. If you'd like to give users restricted access to your project (so they can only view issues they're assigned to, for example), you can ask your administrator to create a new project role.
Well done! You have added Emma as an administrator on your project.
You've now completed the tutorial for project administrators. We suggest that you continue on to the tutorial for Jira Core users guide, so you have a better understanding of how your team can use Jira Work Management.
