More details

Issue Type Filters for Jira (Cloud), is an App that features:

  • Restrict the issue types available for creation. Allow all to create, or allow users that has specific group membership.
  • The filters/rules are applied for the Create Issue operation. (Global Issue Create window only)
  • Scheme based, such that a scheme of rules can be applied to multiple projects.
  • The filters/rules are applied when a user opens the GIC (Global Issue Create) window.

Limitations for now:

  • We are working on getting "roles membership" to work, to supplement groups.
  • Currently, the App only supports company-managed and team-managed Jira Software and Jira Work Management projects. Projects for Jira Service Management, won’t work at this stage.

Difference to the Datacenter/Server version:

The security part part of the DC/Server version is not possible to support on Cloud at this stage.
