How can we display the different set of issue types to different set of users/ different groups of particular project in Jira?

Scenario:

We have created sample project and there are five Issue Types: Story, Epic, Task, Change Request and Bug for that particular project.

Requirement is:

  1. “Story, Epic and Task” options as Issue Types should be displayed for particular set of users/ particular groups.
  2. “Bug and Change Request” options as Issue Types should be displayed for particular set of users / particular groups.

Not out of the box. JIRA handles access at the project level. The behaviors plugin might do it, but I don't know if it is available in the cloud. I suggest you create a project for the different issue types that need to be segregated. You can link across projects with the right permissions.

Take a look at the issue security schemes: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Issue-level+Security

You can set the issue security level in workflow post function, differently for each issue type.

Having said that, creating different projects might be better, as Joe already suggested!
