Questions on changing the setting of comments in jira

Please can you answer the following two questions

  • We don’t want internal comments by developers going to the clients. Can we default all comments to go to “Internal Team Members”?
  • Can we restrict the ability to comment to “Service Desk Customers”? For example set a rule that only members with role “Project Administrator” to have this option.

Also let us know if we can do these two settings at the project level ?
