I would like to restrict the history of an issue for some specific users / project roles.
Is it possible to do this?

The short answer is no, you cannot limit who have access to the history view. Any user that can view the issue can also view the history of it.

Hi Mikael,
Thank you for you answer!

Do you have any idea how can protect sensitive information in the following situation:

- We got one issue type where users with a specific project role enter information (some of them are classified).
- In a specific step of the workflow the issue typ changes and users with a different project role can now see the issue with this second issue type which hides the classified information.

My problem now is the following:

I noticed that even if the second issue typ hides the classifed information, there is still a possibility to see it, if the first project role had to change this information using the first issue type. Because then this change (of the classifed information) can be found in the history and - like you already said - everyone can see it.

Okay, so instead of changing the issue type you may want to consider creating a new issue and copy over the information that is needed. By doing this you can keep the sensitive data separate and the only the specific users will be able to see the history of the first issue.
