Zephyr Permission Scheme

Zephyr Squad Server uses the same users, groups, and permissions that are set up in Jira. Please refer to the Jira documentation for details on setting up users, grouping them and the permissions you can set for them.

By default, Zephyr permissions will be enabled on top of the Jira permissions. Using Jira's "browse project" permissions, Zephyr permission can be enabled or disabled in Zephyr Squad's General Configuration page through Enable Zephyr Permission Scheme flag. As the Zephyr permission schema is enabled, a zephyr-testers group will be created under the Jira user groups and the Project-Role (Zephyr QA) will be added to all the Zephyr related permissions in the project permission schemes.

The following permissions are included (to be broken down into custom roles that can be created later on):
