Permissions Schemes

Asset permissions are created within Permissions Schemes, which are then assigned to specific Asset Type Schemes and Asset Types by App Administrators. One permission scheme can be assigned to multiple types. Project permissions are able to be granted based on:

  • Jira admin role 
  • Groups
  • 'Logged In Users'

The following table lists the different types of asset permissions and the functions they secure.
