Chapter 8. Securing your JIRA

In the previous chapters, we have learned how to store data in JIRA by creating issues. As we can see, as an information system, JIRA is all about data. It should come as no surprise to you that security plays a big role in JIRA not only to ensure that only the right people get access to the data, but also to maintain data integrity by preventing accidental changes.

By the end of the chapter, you will have learned:

  • How to utilize user management features in JIRA
  • About JIRA's permission hierarchy
  • About general access control in JIRA
  • How to manage fine-grained permission settings

Before we delve into the deep end of how JIRA handles security, let's first take a look at how user memberships are managed.
