What is Jira Group?

In Jira, we create groups to manage the collection of users in a more efficient way. we can use the group for various purpose as per the business need like:

  • To allow application/Software access to users
  • Granting filter access and dashboards
  • Grant global permission and project-specific
  • Integration with project roles etc.

Default groups in Jira

By default it provides 2 main groups which is applicable only for Jira software.

  1. Jira- administrators: This group has all the permission to manage all the functionality globally as well as at a project level.
    • it is a member of the Administrators’ project role as well as Jira System admin permission.
  2. Jira- Software users: This group is basically used for providing application access and based on business need it has project admin permission.
    • With this permission, the user can perform most of the project admin-level tasks.
    • Like searching for users, creating and managing shared filters, Dashboards, Bulk change and manage group filter permission.

More groups can be created and manage as per business need.
