I have a newly created project role and want to limit access to various Confluence Spaces, JSWs, and JSMs based on custom field values. Has anyone any experience in this, and could walk me through how this would work?
Thanks in advance
@JD Lobue for JSW and JSM you can do this in two ways:
1. For company-managed projects, you would change the permission scheme that a given project is using to grant the "Browse Project" permission to the role you created, and remove whichever other entities you might not want to be able to have access to the project.
2. If you created the role in the team-managed project, then anyone with this role implicitly has access to the project.
As far as I know, there is not a way to manage access to Confluence spaces based on a Jira role. You would need to use a group.
Hey @JD Lobue ,
I’m not entirely sure what you mean. My best interpretation is that you’re asking if you can only allow users in a certain role to see a given field on an issue.
This idea of “field-level visibility” isn’t supported in Jira and likely never will be. The most common way to work around this is to maintain two distinct Jira projects, one that is “internal” with a certain set of fields, and a separate project with an “external” set of fields. There are also several “issue syncing” apps on the Atlassian Marketplace that can help with this.
You can't do that with custom fields, but you can with issue security.
This lets you set a "level" on an issue that limits visibility further than the project's "browse" permission, you can set up levels to allow totally different sets of people to see issues.
