DoIT Shared Tools - JIRA - Add Users to a Project and Role via UDDS

You may grant access to JIRA users via UDDS number. This way, when a user leaves your department or the University, you will not have to maintain the list of users.

    • JIRA group name (Example: UWKB - Knowledge Base)
    • UDDS number(s) to add (Example: udds-a069099)
    • Specific JIRA User Role


      The image below shows the JIRA Roles that are available. The most common choice is Project Users (Full).
