How to limit views of issue to the specific user if he/she is the reporter?

I need to limit access to issues for the specific user. He/she is allowed to view the issue if he/she is the reporter. In the meantime, all other users should be able to access project issues as usual. How could I configure this kind of behavior? I know that there are issue security schemes. But I don't know how I can apply issue security scheme to one user without affecting others. Let me know if there is a way. Thanks!

Modify the permission scheme and add the Reporter to the Browse Issues permission. Ensure that this user is not in any groups / roles that are assigned any additional permissions.

Hi ,

You have to create a Security Level in Issue Security Scheme with only Reporter having the permission.

Then on the issues, you would like only Reporter to view the issue , set the  newly created Security Level.

Note- To set Security level for a issue, you will require Set issue Security permission.




I don't need other users to be restricted to view issues only if they are reporters, only specific user aaa. 

Can you use the above and set the appropriate Security Level in a post-function on the Create transition only if Reporter = 'aaa'?
