Important notes

Grant "Browse Project" permission to "Current Assignee bug — fix reverted

In JIRA 6.1.6, we introduced a fix for JRA-31720. After further investigation, we have decided to revert this fix due to performance issues (e.g. JRA-36699). This means that JIRA will revert to its original behaviour, which is described below:

  • If you grant the "Browse Project" permission to "Current Assignee" in a project permission scheme, the project metadata (e.g. project name, project key, etc) will be visible to all users.

Unfortunately, this long-standing issue does not have a simple fix. Please watch JRA-31720 for further information. There is also a workaround described in this KB article.
