What Project Team does?

The plugin adds a new tab named "Project Team" on which the team members are displayed along with their project roles as they are defined and configured by the JIRA or project admin. The team can be displayed in two different modes, depending on the user's selection.

Project team displayed by members

In this mode each team member is listed along with its full name, username, avatar, email address and project role(s). You can click the username to see the profile of the user.

JIRA Project Admin displayed on top of the page represents the JIRA user that usually has admin rights on the project and can, for instance, add new components or new versions to the project.

This mode is used when Display mode is set to By members. The size of the avatar (small or large) can also be changed in the plugin configuration page (see Configuring the plugin settings).

Project team displayed by project roles

In this mode each role defined in the project is listed along with its members. You can click the username to see the profile of the user.
