Disable Fisheye commits in activity stream jira system wide


We are using Jira en Fisheye. Both applications have been linked using a single user (basic access).

In jira we can control which (internal) projects has a source tab or not. This way we can keep customer projects free from our commits.

The problem: Many user within our Jira instance use the gadget Activity Stream and use the default gadget settings. The activity stream now shows all commits from Fisheye. Customers can now also see the commits we do.

Is there a way to disable fisheye data in the Activity Stream gadget?

We disabled the activity stream plugin as a workaround but this plugin was being used by pretty much all jira users.

We resolved this issue by setting up a OAuth outgoing en incomming authentication between Fisheye and Confluence. That way every single user needed to allow (with their own Fisheye Account) access to Jira.

Hi Hans,

This may work for you

1. In your project permission scheme, provide "View Version Control" permission to only your developers and not the customers role

2. In your activity stream, add a filter of type "Activity is" and select only important activities like "Issue Created", "Issue Updated" and "Issue Commented"

The workaround is not enough in our setup. There is now an improvement request active for this issue: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-30108
