There are two types of permission that Jira admin can control:

  • Project permission

  • Group permission

Group permission can be controlled at the global level. If users are in the group that does not has access to use the app, all menu below won’t be visible to these users.

  • Apps on the top navigation bar

  • Spreadsheets on the project sidebar

  • Edit on the issue navigator.

Project Permission Limitation:

  • Project permission only can be restricted at the project level. The spreadsheet option won’t be visible on the project bar. However, users can still search for this Jira project using JQL in advanced issue search or in our JQL Editor. This is a technical limitation that we can’t avoid.
