Remove the possibility to share filter with everyone ?

Hi,

Since we are now including external users to our JIRA/Confluence environment, we'd like to keep everything as private as possible. We have told our internal users to not use the option to display their filters to everyone but we'd like to know if it was possible to simply remove that option from the dropdown list ?

Thank you

In JIRA 5.1, this is possible to achieve by modifying the edit-share-types.jsp file, inside the JIRA-INSTALL/atlassian-jira/template/aui folder. You'll need to edit the file and modify from line 22-26, from:

<select id="share_type_selector">
                        <ww:iterator value=".">
                            <option value="<ww:property value="./shareType"/>"><ww:property value="./shareTypeLabel"/></option>
                        </ww:iterator>
                    </select>

To:

<select id="share_type_selector">
                        <ww:iterator value=".">
							<ww:if test="./shareTypeLabel != 'Everyone'">
                            <option value="<ww:property value="./shareType"/>"><ww:property value="./shareTypeLabel"/></option>
							</ww:if>
                        </ww:iterator>
                    </select>

Then, shutdown JIRA, delete the contents of the JIRA-INSTALL/work folder and restart JIRA (The contents of the work directory will be recreated during the restart).
