Add people to next-gen projects

description

Invite new team members, give them a role, change their permissions and manage how people interact with your next-gen software project.

Add people to your project, give them a role, and start collaborating to get things done.

You must have the administrator role in your project to do the things described on this page. Learn more about next-gen project roles.

Add people to your next-gen software project

You can only add people who have joined your Atlassian site. If you can't find someone by their name or email address, ask your Jira administrator to invite them to your Atlassian site.

To give people access to work on your project:


  1. From your project's sidebar, select Project settings > People.
  2. Select Add people.

Change a person's role in your next-gen software project

You can use project roles to manage people's permissions in your project. As a project admin, you can assign people to existing project roles.

To assign someone a different role:

  1. From your project's sidebar, select Project settings > People.
  2. In the person's entry on the table, select the Role drop down menu.
  3. Tick the boxes next to the roles you want the person to have.

Next-gen software projects come with the following roles:

  • Administrator. Admins can do most things, like update settings and add other admins to the project. They can manage features, customize issue types, and add rules on the board.
  • Member. Members are a part of the team. They can create issues, edit them, comment on them, move them into different statuses, and generally collaborate on your project's work.
  • Viewer. Viewers can search through and view issues in your project.

Read more details about the permissions each role provides.

Remove a person from your next-gen project

To remove someone from your project:

  1. From your project's sidebar, select Project settings > People.
  2. In the person's entry on the table, select Remove.

Removing someone from a project doesn't remove them from Jira entirely. Jira admins and site admins can do that through your site's user management settings
