Project Permission

This module allows add-ons to define custom project permissions.

Project permissions are scoped to projects and are useful if you need to manage permissions for operations performed on objects related to projects, like issues, comments, worklogs or your add-on's project-scoped entities.

A custom project permission behaves as any other JIRA permission. Administrators may manage it in the UI, and your add-on can access it through REST APIs. Permissions you define in your add-on can be used in the has_project_permission condition.

Note that there is a similar module for global permissions.

Example

{
  "modules": {
    "jiraProjectPermissions": [
      {
        "description": {
          "value": "Custom project permission for attachments"
        },
        "category": "attachments",
        "name": {
          "value": "My Project Permission"
        },
        "key": "my-project-permission"
      }
    ]
  }
}

Properties

description

Required
Yes
Description

Description of the project permission. It will be displayed under the permission's name.

key

Type
string
Required
Yes
Description

A key to identify this module.

This key must be unique relative to the add on, with the exception of Confluence macros: Their keys need to be globally unique.

Keys must only contain alphanumeric characters and dashes.

The key is used to generate the url to your add-on's module. The url is generated as a combination of your add-on key and module key. For example, an add-on which looks like:

{
    "key": "my-addon",
    "modules": {
        "configurePage": {
            "key": "configure-me",
        }
    }
}

Will have a configuration page module with a URL of /plugins/servlet/ac/my-addon/configure-me.
