we have subcontractor working with us, and I want to share with him the relevant bugs. I don't really need him to fully collaborate within jira, but just to have reference and relevant data from specific issues
Is it possible to share with him only his relevant issues, without allow him to access our project?
Not through JIRA directly. You can produce reports, download them, and send them to him. Unless you have information he isn't allowed to view the easiest solution is to give him only browse permission to the projects they need to see. For users I have with similar requirements I have a project role called 'browse only' and assign them to that role. In the permission scheme that role only has browse permission.
If using up a license is not a problem, I'd suggest this solution:
After that, the external user will be abie to see and be notified of changes just of the issues you want.
The external user would only be able to view those issues, and not any others in the project.
Should that user enter the URL of an existing issue where the Invited Users field lacked her username, a message would be shown instead of viewing the issue, stating:
"The issue you are trying to see does not exist or you do not have permissions to see it".
Have you tried external share for Jira? It's useful because it offers a live view of Jira issues, without using up licenses, and makes it very easy to email issues to external users, while letting them comment and add attachments too!
Let me know if this helps!
