New Privacy Settings: Take Control of Your Data

Atlassian Team
Atlassian Team members are employees working across the company in a wide variety of roles.
July 16, 2019



When you use Atlassian cloud products, you trust us with your data. We take this responsibility seriously, which is why we've invested heavily in processes, privacy safeguards, and stringent data management to ensure we are following industry best practices to keep your data private and in your control. 

As part of our commitment to protect your personal data privacy, we've built new controls into your Atlassian account, so you can decide what personal information is visible across Atlassian cloud products and public communities, such as the Atlassian Community and the Developer Community.

Included with this release, are the following changes that affect users of Jira Cloud, Bitbucket Cloud, and Confluence Cloud:

  • We’ve provided improved settings to manage profile visibility across Atlassian cloud products.

  • As part of an effort to consolidate user profiles, we’ve phased out usernames in favor of using full names and public names when users are searched for and referenced in Jira Cloud and Bitbucket Cloud.

  • Apps that you, admins, or other users may have installed in Atlassian cloud products are being updated to protect your users' privacy.

What this means for you:

  • You can control who can see the information on your profile.

  • Your profile information may look different depending on who’s viewing it.

  • You won’t be able to do things like search for other people by their usernames anymore.

  • Your public name, instead of your full name, will display on community-oriented Atlassian sites, such as Atlassian Community.

  • You may notice changes related to how profile information is used and displayed in apps installed in Atlassian cloud products.

 To learn more about our new profile visibility settings, read our blog and documentation.
