How do I restrict access to View All Boards?

My company has multiple clients and many projects, and we create a project board for each project in Jira. 

Clients are added to project groups, and do not have cross-access into other project groups. E.g., Client 1 is added to Project A, and cannot see any information about Project B - Z. 

However, all individuals and groups DO have access to Boards > View All Boards, where they see a list of all project boards. If Client 1 from Project A clicks on the project board for Project G, they will not see tickets; just an empty backlog or empty sprint board.

However, we name our boards by the project name, which means clients are able to see what else we're working on. This can cause security / NDA concerns for us. 

Is there a permission to specifically restrict (or explicitly grant) access to the View All Boards page?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Angela,

It means that the filters associated with your boards are notre restricted.

You should edit the permissions of the filter for each board to make sure that only the client has the permission to see the filter associated to his project.

I hope it helps!


That was exactly what we needed - thank you!
