  1. Customizing your project
  2. Adding users to your project

As a project administrator you can add groups or individual users 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, you need to be a Jira Core administrator to create the groups or users.

Viewing and changing project access 

In this step, you will add one of your users (Emma) to the Administrators role, so she can help manage your project. 

  1. In your project, select Project administration > Users and roles.
  2. Select Add users to role. 
  3. Search for Emma. You can add multiple users and groups, and delete those you have accidentally added in this Add users dialog.
  4. 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 would 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 Project Administrator Getting Started guide. We suggest that you continue on to the Getting started as a user guide, so you have a better understanding of how your team can use Jira Core.
