Read only dashboard

Hi all,

I've got a project that anyone can create issues and see only its own issues.

Based on that project I've created a dashboard that shows created date, due date, reporter and summary. I need that everybody sees this information about all issues, and only this information, disabling any access to the issue by itself.

Is there any way to do this?

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

Nope.  In order for a dashboard to report on issues, you have to allow the users to see the issues it is going to report on.  So they must have read access to the issues, and there's no way to stop them looking at the issues then.

Hi Nic,

Thanks for your answer. We need to look to a third party tool to achieve or goal.



You'll need an external system actually. One that has access to JIRA to scrape and duplicate the information to non-JIRA users. You won't find anything that does "read only dashboards" inside JIRA, as you still have to grant people the right to see the issues.
