Log in to Jira database.
Run the following SQL command :
SELECT p.id, p.pname, ps.name FROM project p INNER JOIN nodeassociation na ON p.id = na.source_node_id INNER JOIN schemepermissions sp ON na.sink_node_id = sp.scheme INNER JOIN permissionscheme ps ON na.sink_node_id = ps.id WHERE na.source_node_entity = 'Project' AND na.sink_node_entity = 'PermissionScheme' AND sp.permission_key='BROWSE_PROJECTS' AND sp.perm_type='group' AND sp.perm_parameter is null
This SQL is only tested on PostgreSQL. For other database, the SQL may need to be altered to suit the syntax.

id | pname | name -------+-------+------------------------------------------------------ 10200 | MOGA1 | Default Permission Scheme 10000 | TEST | Default Permission Scheme 10101 | SD2 | Jira Service Management Permission Scheme for Project SDT
