    • Defect Integrationuser needs "Create Issue" and "Link Issues" permissions in the mapped project(s) for the mapping JIRA issue type. This permission can be set in JIRA Project's Permission Schemes. 
    • Requirement Integration: user needs "Browse Projects" permission in the mapped projects. This permission can set in Jira Project's Permission Schemes. 
    • Release Integration: user needs permission to edit Version and Sprint for project.
