Quick guide for administrators

In this guide, administrators will learn how to enable Golive on specific Jira Projects and manage security and permissions effectively.


  • You must be a Jira Administrator or Golive Administrator to perform the following actions.

Enable Golive on specific Jira Projects

To use Golive on specific projects without affecting others, follow these steps:

  1. Log into Jira as an administrator.

  2. Click the gear icon next to the + Add Environment button at the upper-right corner.

  3. Select Settings from the drop-down menu.

  4. On Jira projects tab, disable the following parameters:

  • Show Project Page by default.

  • Show Environments Issue Panel by default.

  1. Use the search bar to locate a specific project and enable the corresponding parameters:

  • Project Page.

  • Environments Issue Panel.

Congratulations! Golive is now enabled only for the selected Jira projects.

Manage security and permissions

Golive uses a flexible role-based permission system to control read and write access.

Delegate Golive setup to non-Jira Administrators

To delegate Golive setup to non-Jira Administrators, follow these steps:

  1. Access Apps > Golive in the Jira top menu.

  2. Click the gear icon next to the + Add Environment button at the upper-right corner.

  3. Select Permissions from the drop-down menu.

  4. Click Add Role at the bottom of the Global Permissions list of roles.

  5. Enter a descriptive name. For example, "Golive Administrator."

  6. Add the Golive Administrator permission.

  7. Select Jira users or user groups for this role.

  8. Click Create.

Congratulations! Designated users can now independently set up Golive in their Jira Projects.

Default permissions on standard groups

On a fresh installation, Golive permissions are granted to default Jira groups like jira-administrators, jira-users, jira-software-users, etc.


If you use custom groups, add them to roles created during Golive installation. Refer to the Security and Permissions documentation for detailed instructions.

Role-based Permission system

The Golive Role-Based permission system is intricate. You must be cautious when changing default Golive Roles. Understanding the difference between Global and Environment permissions before making changes is crucial. For detailed information, refer to the Security and Permissions documentation.


Avoid removing permissions from default Golive Roles without a thorough understanding of potential impacts.
