# Permissions

Keep in mind

Regardless of Global permissions and Project permissions, the following exceptions apply.

All Users who have Administer Jira or Administer Projects Permission (or in Team-managed projects in Jira Cloud the Administrator role), could read, create, edit and delete the unencrypted sheet metadata in that Project via the Project Property API.

All Users who have Browse Projects Permission (or in Team-managed projects in Jira Cloud at least the Viewer role), could read the unencrypted sheet metadata in that Project via the Project Property API.

# Global permissions

When JXL is installed in Jira, the following Global permissions (opens new window) can be found in Jira settings. These Permissions are always respected in Sheets, regardless of Project permissions.

Viewing sheets v1.3.0

Users who are member of a Group that has View sheets Permission gain the ability to navigate to and view Sheets.

Editing sheets v1.3.0

Users who are member of a Group that has Edit sheets Permission gain the ability to create, edit and delete Sheets.

Bulk editing issues in sheets v1.4.1

Users who are member of a Group that has Make bulk changes in sheets Permission gain the ability to clear and paste field values in a selection across multiple Issues at once in Sheets.

# Project permissions

In addition to Global permissions, Sheets also obey per-project restrictions based on Permissions from Jira Permission schemes (opens new window).

Viewing sheets

All Users who have Browse Projects Permission (or in Team-managed projects in Jira Cloud at least the Viewer role) gain the ability to view all Sheets in that Project.

Editing sheets

All Users who have Edit Issues Permission (or in Team-managed projects in Jira Cloud at least the Member role) gain the ability to create, edit and delete all Sheets in that Project.

Additionally, all Users who have Administer Jira or Administer Projects Permission (or in Team-managed projects in Jira Cloud the Administrator role), also gain the ability to create, edit and delete all Sheets in that Project.

The same Permissions apply to creating, editing and deleting Structures within Sheets.

# Sheet permissions

Stay tuned

We have planned more granular access management per Sheet in the future.

# Issue permissions

Individual Users' Jira Permissions to view and edit specific Issues and Fields are inherited and respected in Sheets.

Viewing issues and fields in sheets

Table rows where a User does not have the necessary Permission to view the appropriate issue (e.g. due to missing Browse Projects Permission in the relevant Project, or non-membership in the required Issue Security Level) are not visible for that User.

Editing issues and fields in sheets

Table rows where a User does have Permission to view, but not edit the appropriate issue (e.g. due to missing Edit Issues Permission in the relevant Project, or missing Service Project Agent Permission in a Jira Service Management Project) are visible but not editable for that User.
