Limit the number of Issue types in "Create Issue" screen based on user logins

This JIRA project has around 1000 users. There are about 50 Issue types that can be raised. Not all users are eligible to raise all Issue types. We have defined Project roles/groups and assigned users to those roles/groups to differentiate the permissioning level. Now, when users belonging to a particular role/group logs into JIRA, they should be able to see only limited set of Issue types for which they have permissions. Please help me set this up in JIRA.

We are on JIRA version v4.1.2#531.

Nope. Sorry, Jira does not limit the issue types that can be raised in a project.

You can play some tricks with javascript to remove issue types from the list, and block issues from being raised, but they're fiddly and may not help you.

50 issues types ? Wow. This is a little extreme.

First, I think you need to do a cleanup on them: if you have for instance: bug_for_componentX and bug_for_componentY and they have the same WF, you should have only bug and two components.

my 2 cents.
