[Jira] Is there a way to limit the Watchers autolookup to a limited group of users?

What I'm trying to do is to allow a user to add Watcher to an issue, without allowing them access to Browse All Users.

The way it works now, is to allow a user to use the auto-compolete feature, the user needs Global Permissions to Browse Users in Jira...I would like to limit this so that they can only Browse the users in a specific group and/or list.

Browse Users

Ability to select a user or group from a popup window. Users with this permission will be able to see names of all users and groups in the system.

Both uses the same permissions unfotunately. Both auto-complete and user picker or none of it. You can ofcourse turn off auto complete but that is done system wide.

I haven't seen one I am afraid. Maybe someone else can help if they have come across something.

Thanks Jobin. Do you know if there are any work-arounds. Perhaps there is some plugin? I'm really just trying to prevent giving a client full access to our user directory, which contains other clints.

Hi Arthur Shvarts,

Have you managed to solve this? I am sitting with the same problem.

Best regards,
