Atlassian Connect app scopes
When you install an Atlassian Connect app (also known as an add-on or plugin), you're prompted to approve and accept the scopes of the app. This page explains what scopes are, and the breadth of scopes an app might have.
What are scopes?
Scopes are essentially app capabilities – things apps can do to interact with your product instance. An app might need permission to read, write, or delete data in order to integrate with your product instance.
Atlassian Connect apps are hosted remotely, outside your product instance, so they need explicit permission to integrate with your product.
