How to hide a field value in Jira and mask it, like in this e****le

If you are looking for a way to hide sensitive data in Jira behind a mask (like p******d@g*****m instead of, in this article I'll explain how to do it using an App developed by CoreSoft Labs, a company I work in.

What can it be used for?

In every situation in which you're storing sensitive data - like email, phone or credit card number - and don't want to make it available to all Jira users.

What are the benefits?

  • Nobody can see the field's content without permission.
  • Fewer mistakes thanks to automatic validation of your inputs.
  • You can use regex to create custom masks and validations.
  • Control is maintained due to full access configuration - search included!

How to do it?

You need to download Secure Fields for Jira and use the Masked Secure Text Field from the advanced field types. Masked Secure Text Field allows you to restrict its value from being read by unauthorized users.

Any user without the "Read Masked Field" permission will be able to see that the field is not empty, but the actual value will remain masked, just like in this e****le.

The appearance of the masks can be customized using regex. Moreover, the field allows to set validation settings and comes with pre-defined masks and validations (like email or phone).

Masks, validations, permissions and search settings can be additionally changed as necessary.
