What are the rules for label visibility and label suggestion visibility in Jira?

What are the visibility rules for the "labels" field? I thought they were restricted to the project you were working in, but I can see labels from everyone who has used on in our system. This could create serious security risks if someone creates a label that a competitor in our system shouldn't see. Specifically, label "suggestions", and when filtering on labels.

I may need to turn this feature off again if we can't guaruntee keyword security between projects/permission schemes.

Thanks for your help!

Confirmed that label suggestions are only viewable from within a user's permission scheme.

So Hazel, were you the global Jira admin and that's how you see the competitors labels?

Hey Hazel,

There are no permissions/restrictions applicable to labels. A user is allowed to create any labels and labels belong to a particular project.
