Jira Deny guest viewing

On my instance of Jira anyone who happens to look at the site can see the Acitvity Stream, Browse Projects, and see Quicklinks and see internal information without logging in. The site has a public interface for users overseas. Is there a way to disable all external viewing until an authorized user logs in? I don't want any "guest" type viewing. --Thanks

Its more the inverse, you will have projects granting anonymous access, so you need to take that away by checking each 'accessible' proejct for Anonymous references in the projects Roles.

Thanks for the feedback. I don't have any of the general gobal users or groups that would allow generic access without authentication, based on that link. Every user and group is assigned a role and authenticated against the internal AD system. I just don't see a way to disable open global viewing.

You are right!!!! After further digging I found that by not assigning a user/group to a project it allowed it to be openly viewed by all.

I think you might need to update the default dashboard that is displayed, https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+the+Default+Dashboard
