Create meeting rooms
If you don't create meeting rooms, you can only schedule an online meeting.
- Go to the “Meetings for Jira" interface. You can find it in the apps tab in the navigation bar.

Permissions - This is a matrix of roles that you can specify who can access this location and its rooms. You can prevent employees of one office from booking rooms in another office. Also, indicate the employees who will be able to edit the location and create new rooms.
- Now, let's create the first meeting room. Users with create permission of location can create rooms.
