Jira global permission

The jira:globalPermission module allows you to define custom global permissions for Jira. Global permissions are not related to any particular entity and are useful if you need to manage permissions for operations performed on global objects.

A custom global permission behaves as any other Jira permission. Administrators may manage it in the UI and your add-on can access it through REST APIs.

The format of the permission key is: ari:cloud:ecosystem::extension/[App ID]/[Environment ID]/static/[Permission key].

Note that there is a similar module for project permissions.





A key for the module, which other modules can refer to. Must be unique within the manifest.
