Can a security be set up so that only the creator of an issue can view it

I would like to create a specific issue type that would allow anyone to create the issue but only the person who created and a specific group can view it and update it.  Is this possible?

Yes, that is possible. You need to create an issue security scheme in order to do it. Have a look at this KB for more information on how to do it.

Yes, but you'll need to do a bit of work on tying it to "issue type", as issue security is done at a project level.

For the most simple case you describe, you can

  • Create an issue security scheme
  • Create one level within it (let's call it "secret squirrel")
  • In that level, put in the simple rule: Reporter
  • Now, if you wanted to do this for all the issues in the project, you could then set the default level to secret-squirrel.  That would automatically hide the issue from all but the reporter
  • But, to do it only for a single issue type, you'll need to script or automate something (the most simple option would be a post-function on the workflow that issue type is set to use, one that just sets the security level.  Don't put it on the workflows for other issue types)

I'd recommend having other people named in the level, otherwise the issue will be completely hidden from everyone except the reporter, which might defeat the purpose of raising the issue completely!
