The Settings page (Cog tab) is only accessible for group members with System Administrators permission.

Script Edit Permission

Script Edit Permissions for ScriptRunner, gives Jira system administrators the ability to restrict which administrators can edit scripts, based on groups. Users with Jira system administrators or Jira administrators global permissions have script editing permissions by default. This feature allows script editing permissions to be restricted to a smaller group of administrators.

You cannot restrict system administrators from editing scripts. For more information on Jira permission levels, see this Permissions Overview.

For example, you may wish to restrict script editing permissions to only your Jira administrators with scripting knowledge. To do this, first create a new group with the Jira administrators permission and add the administrators who have the requisite scripting knowledge. After you’ve created the new group, follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to the ScriptRunner Browse page by selecting Add-ons from the Jira administrators menu, then Browse ScriptRunner from the left menu.

  2. Click the Cog tab to open the Settings page.

  4. Only users with Jira administrator global permissions appear in the Groups field. Select the group(s) to give script editing permissions to.
