You do need to setup issue security scheme. Go to the project settings -> permissions and set the Browse Projects permission to reporter and assignee

Thanks for the answer, but maybe i explained wrong. I need configure a Role, Group or user that only see his own issues. I can't modify one by one all issues to change his permissions. Are there something to do that?

You do not need to modify every issue. If you provide in the Browse Projects permission Reporter and Assignee then users will be able to see only issues to which they are assigned or they created. If there are other users, who must see all issues, then you also add the group of such users to the browse projects permission.

Sorry, but i can't configure this correctly.

Is a Jira Cloud project, and if i don't give to the user Browser Project permission he can't see any issue of the project.

Push the edit button for the Browse Projects permission and choose the reporter and then the assignee
