Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-8497) Modify JIRA permissions for Apache Tez
Date Wed, 29 Oct 2014 18:16:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-8497?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14188721#comment-14188721

Hitesh Shah commented on INFRA-8497:

[~coreyg] Thanks for the info. My intention was not to add more work so if "disallowing the
Reporting from closing" will result in a new permissions scheme. we can ignore that part of
the request. 

I believe we had requested to follow the old behavior ( i.e move away from the default scheme
) as we could not get contributors to be able to assign jiras to themselves. I recently noticed
a user in the contributor role closing a jira hence the question of the permissions.

Let me know if the above will result in a new permissions scheme. If yes, I think we can live
with the current roles and educate users accordingly ( and mark this jira as wont-fix )

> Looking at the permissions and roles, I noticed the following that users in Project Role
(Contributors) are allowed to resolve and close issues. Could this be permission be removed
from the contributor role? We would like to restrict such resolving and closing to committers/PMC/admins.

> Also, could the Reporter also be disallowed from "Closing the jira"? 
> Let me know if the above is not the usual way in which folks are using JIRA and if there
is a better recommended approach.
> As of now, we are using Contributors as anyone who wants to help contribute to the project
by filing jiras, providing patches, assigning jiras to themselves so as to volunteer their
effort for the jira issue in question.
