    ​We have a business need for our IT group to administer users.
    They only need access to the 'Admin' / 'Users' feature and nothing else.
    Please create a filter to 'hide' everything else for this role so they only see 'Admin' / 'Users' when they login to Jama Software.

    Hi Lisa,
    I think the closest you can get to only allowing your IT group to manage users is to assign permissions to the group (make sure the users are only assigned to this group, remove any other groups they may be in). You then have to go to Permissions and make sure the group has full access rights to the project. The last step is to go through each item in your project and revoke the rights to this group. This will not show the group Admin > Users only but it will limit them greatly in the project. I added some screen shots for you as a reference. I will also check with some colleagues to determine if there is an easier way to achieve this...if it's even possible.

    Admin > Permissions > Add Permissions

    Admin > Permissions  Then go through and remove permissions for each item of the project (Keep admin permissions on project level).
