Restrict plugin to specific projects


We are using JIRA to send maintenance emails to the entire company. Since all actions are sent to everyone, we've restricted the comment section to administrators only. The thing is that people has found a way to contact us using the Email this issue plugin. Unfortunately, this is automatically creates a comment including the Email this issue content.

We'd like to know if there was a way to restrict the plugin to only certain projects so we do not get this problem anymore ?

I was finally able to do what I wanted by creating a Project Role with the name IssueMailSender and assign users to it in your projects.

If a project role with this name is used in your project and the current user is member of this role, then the operation will be displayed, otherwise not.

No. There's no mechanism for this at all. Some plugins implement something internally to allow you to decide when a plugin is appropriate, but generally a plugin is system wide and provides a global facility. Jira itself has no way to limit plugins by project.


Email This Issue may be configured either:

- not to create the comment or

- set the comment visibility to jira-administrators

See the documentation for details:
