The XSEDE Confluence administrator, JIRA administrator, and Confluence space administrator security roles limit our ability to have a security operations confluence space with tight access controls. Also, current JIRA and Confluence roles are not coupled to WBS staffing lists. This activity will gather our JIRA and Confluence spaces, authorization, and administration requirements, compare them to our current authorization configuration, and propose and implement changes that better address all XSEDE requirements.
