In Jira Align, you can create a role based on the other role by copying it. Then, you can configure it.

To copy a role:

  1. If you’re using the new navigation, select the Settings gear Gear in the top navigation bar. If you’re using the old navigation, select Administration in the left Nav menu.
  2. On the left side of the page, select Roles in the Access Controls section.
  3. Under Copy Role, from the Existing Role drop-down menu, select the role you want to copy. 
  4. In the New Name box, type the name of your new role.
  5. Click Copy Role. The role is added under the Jira Align Roles section, with the same list of permissions as the original role.
  6. Find the added role, and then turn on the levels you want the role to have permissions to.
  7. Click the plus sign of the level you chose, and then turn on the specific areas of that level the role should have access to.
  8. Click Save.
