Permission schemes and their usage

Power Admin for Jira allows you to find any permission scheme in your configuration and shows all the projects associated with it.

Find permission schemes

To find a permission scheme:

  1. On Power Admin's Landing page, select Permission Scheme from the drop-down, type a name or ID, and start your search.

  2. On the Search results page, click on the name of a permission scheme. You can filter further the permission schemes by usage in projects.

  3. Then, the permission scheme’s profile page appears.

Search results

The page with search results shows the following information for each permission scheme:

  • Name and id of the permission scheme - you can search for a permission scheme by its name or ID.

  • Projects - shows a count of the projects associated with the permission scheme. When you click on the project count lozenge, you could view a list of all the projects.

Permission scheme -> Project relation

In the configuration, a permission scheme can be associated with a project from the Project settings->Permissions in the Jira UI. And then, this relation is detected and presented to you by Power Admin.

Permission Scheme's profile page

Using the profile page, you could view a list of the projects where the permission scheme is present in the project configuration.

Usage information

The Summary section shows the count of the projects associated with the permission scheme. You can click on the count to view a list of the projects. An issue security is associated with a particular project from the Project settings->Permissions in Jira.

The Details section of the profile page shows details of the projects associated with the permission scheme. You can then navigate, if you want to, to the profile page of each project.
