Accessing Permission Editor

The Customfield Editor for Jira enables normal users to edit options of a customfield without beeing part of the jira-administrators group. Therefore the Jira administrator needs to grant permissions on customfields via the Permission Editor to normal users. To access the Permission Editor, follow the steps below:

  • Select in the Jira top navigation bar Administration > Manage Apps.

  • The App page will appear. Click in the side navigation on the left on Permission Editor.

Note: For all actions described in this Administrator Guide you need Jira administrator privileges.
