R4J allows project administrators, as well as Jira Administrators, to restrict the various permissions of individual projects to user groups, roles, specific users, and more. This is possible to do via the Jira Project Permission Scheme.
In your Jira project’s permission scheme, all permissions prefixed with “[R4J]“ are the R4J Permissions that will take effect in the corresponding activated R4J projects associated to the scheme.
To make clear the terminology used throughout the documentation:
Old permissions refer to the R4J permissions outside of Jira project permission schemes which are located in R4J project administration page.
New permissions refer to the R4J permissions integrated with the Jira project permission scheme which are documented in this page.
