Granting the right permissions to the right people is key to using Tempo for Cloud effectively in your company. Different permissions are used to control accessibility to certain data or to be able to do certain tasks in Tempo. 

Tempo uses three types of permissions:

When you install a Tempo app, several of Tempo's own permissions are added here, as described in Global Permissions. These permissions are about giving people access to Tempo products, as well as specifying the key people for administering Tempo for your company. 
    You need to have Jira administrator permissions to grant any of these Global permissions.  
  • Project Permissions: These are project-level Jira permissions that affect access to Jira projects, their issues, and time records in Tempo. When you install a Tempo app, several Several basic Jira project permissions need to be granted to Tempo users, as well as the Time Tracking permissions, as described in Project Permissions
    You need to have Jira administrator permissions to grant any of these Project permissions.
  • Team Permissions: These are Tempo's own set of permissions that are related to Tempo teams. Team permissions are granted to users who are in Permission Roles, as described in Creating Team Permission Roles. Then only those users can access the worklog or plan data from the members of that team.
