user work log regardless of issue security level


in our jira there are 2 security level, in firs security level everybody can see issues and in second only specific user can see issues,

now I want create a filter that show a user worklog and set this filter on jira timesheet report & gadget plugin,

suppose user name is X, this user log work in 2 issue (issue1, issue2) that have firs security level and he/she can see those issues and log work on those, now I write this JQL :

worklogauthor = X

then issue navigator show 2 issue that this user log work on those and set this filter on timesheet plugin and it work correctly,

then after some day for some reason I decide that change issue2 security level to second type and after that user X can not see issue2 and this is correct, but we want he/she see his/her worklog that loged in past but it does not happen and worklogauthor = X only show issue1,


I think user X although should not see issues with second security level but he/she regardless of issues security level must can create a filter on he/she loged work at all time (past and current),

thanks for your attention :)

If you secure an issue from someone, you are deliberately hiding it.  The user can't see the issue, and hence not see the worklog - it's not secure any other way.

thanks Nic

so how can I set an issue security level base on work log author ?!

namely I want an issue security level that user X can see all of issues that he/she log work on that issue

You can't, directly.

Best I can think of without code - use the JIRA Toolkit field "participants" and then grant access to that in the security scheme.  Participants accumulates the reporter, assignee and anyone who has commented into a single field.

thanks, I test participants field in JIRA toolkit plugin but it do not save users that log work on an issue sad

is there a plugin with custom field that save users that log work on an issue ?!

or I should use script runner plugin ?!


I don't know of one, but yes, SR should be able to do it.  Might be best as a listener that catches "work logged" and copies the user into a multi-user-select
