Restrict users in user picker list?

Hi all,

user picker fields offer a little icon to launch a User Picker dialog. In that dialog all registered JIRA users are shown, no matter who is logged in and independently from their permission to the project that is being worked on.

Data shown are username, full name and email. These three fields are available for search. Makes sense.

However, the list should preferably only show those users that are actually permitted in the project that this field is used. Is there any way to configure that?

So in a particular project we want to get only the list of the involved users.

Is there a way to configure that?

 

Thanks ina dvance,

Rumi

Rumi,

If you are using JIRA 6.2 or above, you can do that using a "User Picker" custom field that allows you to choose which Groups or Roles you want. 

For more details, take a look at the documentation on https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+a+Custom+Field#ConfiguringaCustomField-userfilteringUserFiltering
