Can I assign all old issues to security level while assigning project to the issue security scheme?


I want to share board with our client, but I don't want him to see any other issues except of these, which he reported himself. To do that I want to use Issue Security Scheme. But there is one problem - I have 700 issues that already exist and adding security level to each of them would be a real nightmare! Is there any possibility to assign all of the issues to the specific security level at one time?

Thank you.

You could try to use bulk update to set sequrity level for all old issues.

Could you tell me how can I perform bulk update in JIRA Software Cloud? I cannot find this option.

Thank you.

Search for the issues, then look at the tools option at the top right of the result.

Note that you need to have "bulk edit" permission as well as the right to set security on the issues you select.  As an admin, check what group(s) have that in Admin -> Global permission.

Ok, I found that, thanks a lot!
