Permissions

Define the template management permissions

Introduction

Templates are regular Jira issues, so you can decide who will be able to manage them.
In the Permissions section, you can grant access to create, delete and/or edit templates within the Template Repository.

Warning

Edit issue permission within the Template Repository project allows people to edit templates. Users with Edit issue permission can also change the template’s configuration in the Template Details panel.

Example

For example, if you’d like to limit the number of people who can create new templates, you can grant the Create issue permission only to the admin group. As a result, only administrators will be able to create templates in the Template Repository.

The following table will help you identify what actions are available for different permission levels.
