In this chapter, you learned how to manage users and groups. To give access to new users and assign them to the right group is one of the most important activities of a JIRA administrator. The responsibility of adding new users to the system and assigning them to the right group is crucial for data integrity, and it should be in tune with your company's policies. You also learned how to create project roles and define their permissions.
In the next chapter, you will learn how you can integrate JIRA with LDAP, Crowd, and JIRA user server. This way, users don't need to remember multiple logins for different tools, and it is also much easier for the administrators to manage users efficiently from a single place.
