Next-Gen Project Permissions - Tempo Cloud

Our Cloud Help Center has a new home at

We will no longer be updating Cloud documentation in this space, so please be sure to check the new site for the latest documentation and learning content.

Project Permissions are tied to one or more projects and the issues and worklogs contained within that project. You need to be a member of the project's board to see the hours of a next-gen project. Go to the Project Settings of the project, and then select Access in the sidebar to see who has access to the project.

Roles (also known as permissions) control what each person can see and do on the project's board. To see Tempo data in your next-gen projects, you need to grant Tempo permissions for the project. Tempo permissions are granted by creating a new role and then selecting which Tempo permissions you want to apply to that role.

For more information about next-gen projects, see Atlassian's documentation.
