How do I grant guest users permission to view my public projects?

In YouTrack, the guest user account is responsible for the anonymous, or guest access. To provide the guest account access to your public projects, follow these instructions.

  2. Select the guest user.
  3. Click the Unban button.

  2. Click the link for the guest account.
  3. Select the Roles tab.
  4. Click the Grant role button.
  5. In the Grant Role dialog, select Issue Reader from the Role drop-down list, and select your public projects from the list of projects. The Issue Reader role lets users read issues and comments.
