Atlassian sent out this email overnight advising there is a new ‘view issues’ permission coming soon:
Over the next month, we’re rolling out changes to how project permissions work in classic Jira projects.
We’ve split the permissions for viewing a project’s issues and seeing the project’s details across your Jira site.
From now on, you can grant the following permissions separately in your classic permissions schemes:
- the Browse project permission – which lets people see the project’s name, key and other details in the project directory or while searching Jira
- the View issues permission – which lets people view and interact with a project’s issues
We tie a lot of our app’s functionality to the
BROWSE_PROJECTS permission so this is likely to require several changes on our part. I have lots of questions but I haven’t been able to find any developer information about this change.
Can any Atlassians answer these for us?
- What is the key of the new permission, is it
- Will everyone who currently has ‘browse projects’ be granted ‘view issues’ automatically?
- Is it possible to have ‘view issues’ permission without having ‘browse projects’?
- Will ‘browse projects’ do anything any more if you grant it to ‘current assignee’ — will users be able to see a restricted project if they have a ticket in it?
- How does ‘view issues’ permission interact with issue security schemes?
- When is the change being rolled out — and can we get early access to it?
