Limit "Browse Users" to project level permission, not global

Alex Christensen Community Champion Jan 23, 2015

I know this is an outstanding limitation of JIRA - the question on how to do this in JIRA has already been asked and there's also an open issue for it with Atlassian. Basically, we have multiple customers that need access to the same JIRA instance, but those customers should not be able to see each other's users (i.e. users from Customer A should not be able to see users from Customer B, and vice versa). However, we want customer users to have the ability to search for users within their project (each customer is assigned to a different project), but there's no way to allow users to do this without giving them the "Browse Users" permission, which is a global permission and can't be set on a project level.

Has anyone found any workarounds or add-ons that will enable you to do this? I'm aware of the Zones add-on, but I'm also interested if there might be any other solutions or workarounds out there. Any information or feedback would be greatly appreciated!
