Limiting the options in a field in the filter screen

Graf Bishop April 21, 2023

Is there a way to reduce the number of options in a field in a filter. We have clients with access to 1 project but when they use the filter, if they leave the Projects filter set to All, they see ALL possible option values in all available fields. This is a serious data security issue in 2 ways:

1. ALL people fields will show ALL users (plus part of their email address), including other client users that do not belong to their project;

2. ALL custom fields will show ALL possible values, including a Client Name field we have - this allows every client of ours to see the full list of all other clients that we are working with.

Thanks.

That's how it's built, and it cannot be changed. This is something for Atlassian to address and I think there are some requests for this on https://jira.atlassian.com/issues/?jql= but might be tough to filter it out with a good query.

The way the JQL query is implemented doesn't really leave much of a room for this right - because you write the whole thing, in any order you want. It would need to be completely changed to facilitate such a thing.
