General configuration - Managing Program's security

The Program security settings can be configures only when the 'Default Roles' is selected in the app's global configuration, otherwise, all users will be granted highest level permissions.

There are three levels of permissions on top of the Jira permission and security settings, which are always respected by the app.

The permissions can be granted to individual users or to groups.

1Program admin

All permissions, except for access to Administration are granted to given user or group, including access to the Program configuration.

2Program editorUsers or groups are allowed to create new Programs and automatically have the access permissions to Programs in which they participate.
3Program userUsers or groups can open the app and display Programs in a "read-only' mode.

Program Administrators not necessarily need to be Jira Administrators. Depending on the privileges one holds in the company these may always vary.
