Allow non-admin users to create, edit or delete commit policies - DONE

One potential security model:

  • Allow selecting user(s) or user group(s) that can create new policies (in addition to JIRA admins).
  • Allow selecting user(s) or user group(s) for each policy who can update or delete that policy (in addition to JIRA admins).

    In a locked down environment like our own where we have administrators that manage the services, we need a way for users to be able to create and update their own commit policies.  At the moment we have to do a screen share and log in while the users makes changes.  Not convenient.

    This functionality is required as the team who manages the policies is not the same team who own the Jira platform which makes it awkward when new policies need creating. Having the opportunity to add another crowd group to manage the policies will make the working relationship with this other team easier.

    I am working on the design of the revised permission model that will allow non-admin users to create/edit/delete policies. Not surprisingly, there are many approaches we can take here, ranging from the simple-but-inflexible to the complex-but-flexible.

    I'd be happy to share my design with actual users just to be sure that what we implement meets the end-user needs.

    If you want to review the design before we implement this, please email me at:

    As Aron mentioned, we have been working on a new feature to make it possible for non-Jira admin users to manage commit policies, while maintaining internal security and honor existing user permissions.

    We evaluated multiple options from the super-flexible (but hard to administer) to super-simple (but inflexible). We arrived to a solution that is easy to understand, near-zero effort to manage and matches the requirements we heard from customers.

    We are now offering you a "preview release" of the app, so you can confirm if the new model actually meets your use case.

    This is the best time to influence the development of this feature with your comments, as after a public release major modifications are difficult and unlikely.

    Take this limited time offer to express your thoughts and reach out to me at for a preview version of Better Commit Policy for Jira!
