Native JIRA can't do this. However, you can do this, but it will require some scripting ability, and at least one plugin. Set Issue Security in the Permission Scheme sets who can see what issues. From this documentation:
Issue Level Security can be set based on the value in a Group Custom Field. The trick here is getting the right group names in this Group Custom Field, based on the value in the label field.
I hope I've outlined the steps here sufficiently, but what you are asking for is indeed possible. It just requires some additional plugins and some scripting expertise.
Yep. In Jira, a "group" is what it sounds like - it is a collection of users that you define. It gets a bit complicated trying to explain it for all situations because groups are defined in whatever system you are using for user directories, and there are several possibilities for those, which I don't really need to go into here. Let's say you have some groups: jira-users (everyone who can log in) jira-admins (your administrators are in here) team-support (people who will pick up support requests) team-java (java developers) team-fred (some people called Fred) If you add a "group picker" custom field, you will find it automatically picks up those five groups and lets you associate them with the current issue (when you create/edit it) I usually use it for "group emails" myself - in the notification schemes, it can be really useful to say "send update emails to everyone in team-java for this issue", but you can use it in the security schemes as well to say "and let the group named in this field see the issue as well"
