What are the Jira roles?

In Jira, there are three default roles for projects: Administrators, Developers, and Users.

  • Administrators

    • Administrators are responsible for setting up, managing, and configuring Jira. They create and manage user accounts and assign permissions and roles. Adjustments to workflow schemas and field configurations are also part of the job. The Jira Admin has the highest level of access authorization.

  • Developers

    • Developers in Jira manage the creation and processing of issues within the Jira project. They can browse projects and view read-only workflows and development tools like admins.

  • Users

    • Typically, a user role in Jira has limited access rights and can only view the projects they are approved for. Users can create Jira tickets, add comments, or upload attachments. A user can also be a member of groups that give them additional permissions within Jira. Users can also access their favorite projects and boards from the dashboard and track activities they are involved in.

Each role is important for effective use of Jira and successful project management in Jira.
