Project Roles

Project Roles are an important feature within Jira and provide a flexible way to associate users and/or groups with particular projects.

Over time, you may want to review the available Project roles in Jira and, as part of your routine maintenance or clean-up initiatives, reduce the number. With the Project Roles smart table in Optimizer, you can view and manage all of these configurations in one place.
