The Scheduler transitions from Access Manager into ‘Jira style’ permissions with support for Global and Project custom permissions.
We used to have our Access Manager, however to ease the process of app management, we decided to shift towards Jira Permissions style. It would allow Jira administrators to set permissions easily and to verify permissions with permission helper. It would also make the experience of managing access to app the same for users of Cloud and Server.
By default Jira Administrators and Project Administrators have access to all Scheduled Issues in project.
With permissions app can be configured to allow certain Jira users/roles/groups to use the app and schedule issues.
Custom permissions created by app:
Global: The Scheduler: Access
This global permission is required for users to access the app on global level. Project and Global Administrators are granted this by default. This permission is like an app wrapper, on project level users are required to have permission “The Scheduler: Use”.
Project: The Scheduler: Use
Granting this permission allows to use the app for creating scheduled issues (create, edit, view, delete). Project and Global Administrators are granted this by default - to ensure app can be used and managed. Global permission “The Scheduler: Access” is required.
Jira Administrators and Project Administrators have access to all Scheduled Issues in project.
In the future we might extend app permissions to better organize work, if you have any ideas and needs let us know on our customer portal: The Scheduler - Support Portal
