There are three types of permission that Jira admin can control:
Choose which project can view the Excel-like Issue Editor icon on the project side panel.
Choose who can edit the spreadsheet.

Project Permission Limitation
Project permission can only 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.
