Installing the Gtmhub JIRA Cloud plugin automatically creates a new JIRA permission called View OKRs. 

As a result, all users who are granted with this permission have access to OKRs from Gtmhub that are being linked to a given issue in JIRA. 

You can check the permissions of your JIRA account by:

  1. Navigating to JIRA Settings > System > Global permissions
  2. View the View OKRs section

By default, all default JIRA groups are granted with View OKRs permission. To grant a custom-made JIRA group with this permission, just follow these steps:

  1. Go to Add permission
  2. Select View OKRs permission from the drop-down menu
  3. Choose the group you want to have access to your linked OKRs.

In addition, note that by granting a group of users a global View OKRs permission, they can have access to all linked OKRs in all JIRA projects.

You can also grant View OKRs permission on project level. By doing so the users granted with this permission can have access only to the linked OKRs in the selected JIRA project. 

To do that, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Projects 
  2. Choose a JIRA project 
  3. Select Project Settings > Permissions
  4.  Choose Edit permissions from the Actions drop-down menu
  5.  Scroll down to View OKRs permissions
  6.  Click Edit
  7. Grant permission to the group you want
  8. Click the Grant button 

Notice that on project level you can grant View OKRs permission not only to a group of users but also to a project role and to users with specific application access. Also, it's worth mentioning that if you granted global View OKRs permission to a group of users, you don't have to grant the same group with project level View OKRs permission because the group already has access to all linked OKRs across the JIRA instance. That's why on a project level, there are no default JIRA groups being granted with View OKRs permission - because all default groups have global permission by default.

Here is the entire process of creating a new group with users and granting the group with global View OKRs permission:
