Configuring LQE Permissions for Jira Projects

Once data sources are registered, it's time to determine what ELM users will be able to see Jira content. Jira Process data source exposes all projects in Jira having Collaboration Links (or at least all projects capable of creating them, this means all projects associated with ELM projects) and it is very unlikely that an ELM user should see or get access to all Jira projects. Given this, the recommended approach is to create an ELM User Group, for each Jira exposed project, and then associate ELM user(s) to them as required.

To know which Jira projects are exposed:

  1. On the LQE Administration page navigation, under Access Control, click Permissions.
  2. In the Data Groups tree view, look for and expand the TRS 2.0 for OSLC Connect for Jira Process Resources entry.

Jira exposed projects will be listed as child entries of the expanded node. Now, in order to create a User Group for each of them:

  1. On the LQE Administration page navigation, under Access Control, click User Groups.
  2. Click on the Add a new group... link.
  3. Enter a unique name for the group (Jira project name is recommended) and a description if you want, and click OK.
  4. Under Access Control, click Permissions.
  5. In the Data Groups tree view, look for and expand the TRS 2.0 for OSLC Connect for Jira Process Resources entry.
  6. Select the Jira project for which you just created the User Group.
  7. Click on the Add groups... link on the Groups panel.
  8. Select the corresponding created User Group and click OK.

Repeat above steps for each Jira exposed project. Finally, to associate ELM users to required User Group(s):

  1. On the LQE Administration page navigation, under Access Control, click User Groups.
  2. Look for and click on the User Group to associate the user with.
  3. Click on the Add a new user... link.
  4. Type the user name to associate with and select it from the Matching users area.
  5. If more users need to be included, click the Add button and repeat last step; otherwise click the Add and Close button.

That's it, associated ELM users will have access to Jira projects depending on which User Groups they were included.
