Add comment and viewing restrictions

Dalvan Marques April 12, 2024

Guys, I would like some help. In Jira, there is a setting to restrict who can view a comment added to an item. What is the step-by-step configuration?

Hi @Dalvan Marques 

What are you specifically looking to configure? What is the need?

It would appear this is currently configured to allow comments to be limited by Project Role - and whilst you can expand this to Groups - that's the extent of these permissions natively.

To edit between Project Roles and Groups/Roles...

  1. Go to Settings (cog icon in top-right) > System
  2. Ensure you're in General configuration from the left-hand menu
  3. Select Edit settings in the top-right
  4. Edit the option next ti Comment visibility

Note: A user must be assigned that Project Role within the Project, or be a member of the Group, for it to appear for them in this list.

Hi @Dalvan Marques ,
as a Jira Admin you can toggle between Groups & Project Roles and Project Roles only. Go to General Configuration



Edit Settings > "Comment visibility"


This lets you restrict a certain comment either to just one group or one project role.

Hope that helps. 

The official Jira documentation is very brief in describing this feature:
