Get started with Profields administration
Step 2: The admin screen
Profields has a single admin screen, there's no need to be a JIRA admin to configure and manage Profields but you will need to be a Profields Administrator
What is a Profields Administrator?
Those who are Profields admins can create fields, fields layouts and associate project to fields layout. At the first moment, right after installing Profields everyone that is a JIRA Project administrator is also a Profields admin. This situation can be changed on the administration screen.
To set who has Profields admin privileges follow the next steps:
- Disable the option "Permissions for everyone", this option allows every JIRA Project admin to be a Profields admin.
- In the Profields Administrator section that now is enabled, you can select the users and groups that will have Profields admin privileges, search, filter and select those you wish.
- You can enable the option "Permissions for everyone" at any time you want, then any JIRA Project admin will also a Profields Admin but the users and groups that are selected before won't disappear.
