User access - Global Roles vs. Per Program Roles
To understand how our Roles structure works it is important to remember that the BigGantt and BigPicture operate in Jira environment, therefore have two spheres of permissions to follow: Jira Permissions which give users and groups access to Projects and tasks within them and Plugin Roles that are assigned to users by our plugin. To learn more about Jira permissions please follow this link. Our plugin roles are structured as follows:
- Global Roles settings manage User's overall access to our plugin
- per program Roles define or rather 'fine-tune' additional User's Roles per program.
Please bear in mind that BigPicture roles do not affect/overwrite Jira roles in any way.
