zephyr-squad-cloud uses the same users and user groups that are set up in your Jira instance. User permissions are inherited from the Jira permission scheme configured for a project.
To learn how to configure user permissions in Jira, refer to Jira documentation:
Jira permissions required for Zephyr operation
The Browse Project permission is always required to access the Zephyr application within a specific Jira project.

Clear permission cache
Zephyr Squad caches Jira user permissions to improve performance. As a result, when you change Jira permissions, it might take some time (up to an hour) before the changes are reflected in Zephyr Squad.
You can clear Zephyr permissions cache to force load the new permissions:
Log in to Jira as an administrator.
Go to > System.
Select the Zephyr General Configuration category on the left.
Click Clear Permission Cache.
