'Anonymous Users ’ activities in 'Activity Stream' - NO Anonymous access



I see unusual activity in our JIRA instance, logged in ‘Activity Stream’ (around 03.00 last night).

There are 'Anonymous Users ’ activities, which is extremely sensitive since our instance does NOT grant anonymous users access.



Anonymous User

The only way I believe this could have happened is if a ‘JIRA Administrator ’ has granted access to anonymous users.


Can anybody help with other possible scenarios why 'Anonymous User' activity would show in 'Activity Stream' even if there is no Anyone group assigned for any permission in any permission scheme?

Hi All,


I would like to add that we installed 'Traceability Matrix and Link Graph' plug-in last week and since then we see logged activity with anonymous user for this plugin as well:

I recognized the IP belongs to a user, and normally all his activities are logged with his username.

What I don't understand is why there are 'anonymous' activities since we did not allow that(at least that's what we thought).



Any help is appreciated.
