Commenting to non reportes of issues into a ticket


I have recently changed my Jira’s permissions so only users who report issue have access to browse issue. This work’s a treat however I have one issue I am unable to resolve. I still want to bring people into the ticket when required by @commenting them. Is there a way to do this?

Hello Keven,

I believe the best way you can do this is by adding AllWatchers permission in the browse permissions and in the comment permissions as well. Thus your issues will be visible not only for those who created them, but also for those you @mention in the issue, once they become watchers of an issue at the moment you mention them in it.


Hope this helps.
