JIRA Project roles vs groups

Project roles are somewhat similar to groups, the main difference being that group membership is global whereas project role membership is project-specific. Additionally, group membership can only be altered by JIRA administrators, whereas project role membership can be altered by project administrators. Every project has a project lead and every project component has a component lead. These individual roles can be used in schemes, issues and workflows, just like project roles.
