can you limit user access to particular epics within projects?

can you limit user access to particular epics within projects?

we are exploring how to limit user access to particular epics so that those users can only see tickets related to that epic and nothing else.

Hello Chris,

For your requirement, you would have to use the concept of

"Issue level security"

In JIRA the permission scheme is based on all issues of the project irrespective of issueType. Since in your case you want restrictions on certain Epics, thus you would have to implement issue level security on the epics.

please go through these docs

Types of permissions

 

There are three types of permissions in JIRA applications, and they range from the high-level to granular: 

  • Global permissions - These apply to applications as a whole, not individual projects (for example, whether users can see the other users in the application).
  • Project permissions - Organized into permission schemes, these apply to projects (e.g. who can see the project's issues, create, edit and assign them). While project admins can assign users to a project, they can't customize the permission schemes for a project. There are lots of project-level permissions you can set to control what users can do within a project.
  • Issue security permissions - Organized into security schemes, these allow the visibility of individual issues to be adjusted (within the bounds of the project's permissions). For example, issue security permissions can let you set up types of issues that can only be seen by project admins or users in specific groups.
