More details

This plugin allows you to set the default security level for comments and/or change the color of the comment field to highlight visibility. The settings can be applied globally for all Jira projects and/or at the project level.

Specify different default role/user group for:

  • New comment
  • Add attachment
  • Log work
  • Link issues
  • Edit Issue
  • Assign Issue
  • Transitions (also specify per-transition defaults)

If the role specified as the default is not in the role list then you are able to force the user to select a value.


Set the background and/or border color of the comment field for comments that are "Viewable to all users" or all the other security settings.


Restrict access to which users will get default values.
