Is it possible to display custom field based on user group. i see one plugin for field security but it is commercial.
Please also tell me if i can control custom field display in the workflow CONDITIONS.
Thanks in advance
No, Jira does not do field level security. See https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/jra-1330
I suspect the plugin you've found is the one that adds it (I have not used it much myself, but at a glance, it does seem to work well - the obvious traps like working in excel, the issue-navigator and so on seemed to be caught)
As for Conditions, I don't think you've understood what they're for. They stop people from performing actions. They have nothing to do with fields or the display.
Argh. Although that is a slight improvement, because we can now guess that you might be trying to stick random files into the core of Jira without really knowing what you're doing.
You have a set of options here
Write a plugin that provides a field that implements the security you want
Hack the existing core files to insert things like "if field is type X and called Y and I'm in project Z, then hide it from users matching a pattern"
Add new files (which is what you seem to be trying) and then hack the core code in Jira to tell it when to use them. I would admit to being out of my depth here - I think it's possible, I am pretty sure that if it is, you need to find and amend a whole swathe of files to point at your new templates, but I really don't know where to look next. I'd really not recommend trying to do it this way though, it's a lot of work - plugins are a LOT more simplg.
