Using proejct role for View is not working and Group returns an error screen


This plugin would solve one of the most voted features and it is very much appreciated.

However, I cannot make it work. I tried adding one custom free text field and add the project roles I wish to view this field. I logged in with a user who only has one role not added for viewing and the user can still see this field.

Also when I try to add the same configuration using groups I get the following error:

I am using JIRA 5.0.6.
Thank you!

Hi! I was testing this plugin mostly on 5.1.6. And now on 5.0.4 we faced this problem. I will fix it today or tomorrow. Also we have a lot of useful plugins. You can find them on , all of our plugins are free. Occasionaly I don't have time to publish plugins on market, so actual sources and updates you can find on my page on github . Also Cf rights Manager supports great number of our customfields
