Is it possible to limit user browsing so that a user only can see other users which are in the same group or in a configurable group/groups? We do not want to grant the "Browse Users" global permission so that every user can see every other user for @ mentioning. But without the "Browse Users" global permission the mentioning doesn't work
No, you can't limit the group visibility to "same as me"
Atlassian have not even tried to implement it. It is a bit of a pain for certain cases, but there's massive logical problems with implementing it. Off the top of my head:
Sort of. You can apply security schemes to issues that limit access. You can setup a default security scheme. Check out https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/configuring-issue-level-security-185729623.html to start.
I'm afraid that is a non-starter. Working out "who is in my project" becomes exponentially difficult because of Jira's flexibility, and, quite often, people are using mentions because they want to draw in someone who is not "in the project".
I would like something that skips groups and uses its own rules. I should be able to group users into silos and people can only see people in their silo. With the option to make any silos globally available if necessary (e.g. everyone can see the support team silo, even when they're not a support person)
No, it does not.
It checks if a user has view issue, and create issue. Project "users" can be a lot more complex than that. Those are relatively simple checks, optimised, nothing to do with other users, and are absolutely not "is user on project" checks.
Maybe I don't fully understand this, but when a user opens the dashboard, or the list of Projects, there is a check for what projects their see. Surely this trickles down to each project's People (and Groups) list. So it's not that crazy.
But, again, I may be seeing things.
