Confluence-jira issue visibility

Hi,

Lets consider three users mary, john, stuart

 

Mary is PM and has admin right to confluence space "Conf-EM" with key CEM and JIRA project "Jira-EM" with key JEM

John is a developer and has user rights i.e. view and add for the space "Conf-EM" and JIRA project "Jira-EM".

John is working for another project also which is having JIRA project name as "Jira-PA" with same view/add permissions.

 

Case :

Mary has linked JIRA epic JEM-123 and JEM-456 in one of the page of confluence space Conf-EM.

as I said John has view/add rights to both the "Conf-EM" and "Jira-EM" , he can see the page in which mary has linked epics but problem is John is able to see issues JEM-123, JEM-456 added by Mary and also Issues of project "Jira-PA" for which he has access.

Which is wrong. He must be able to view only the things which is added by Mary and not another project "Jira-PA" 

 

Please give your valuable suggestion to resolve it.

Hi Ajinkya,

Can you clarify? 

You say John has permission to view both the "JIRA-PA" and "JIRA-EM" projects? That would explain why, on the confluence page, he can see issues from both projects.

Converted it to an answer because I think Sam has said exactly what it is.

A brief analysis:

Mary's role here is actually irrelevant, so we can ignore a lot of the question.  There's two sentences that matter:

  1. John is working for another project also which is having JIRA project name as "Jira-PA" with same view/add permissions.
  2. [John] must be able to view only the things which is added by Mary and not another project "Jira-PA"

Those contradict each other.  John has access to JIRA-PA, so he can see the issues in it.  That's correct, and you don't really have a problem with the systems here, they are doing what they should - show shared information to people who can see it.
