    Redirecting all requests to the login form

    Accessing such filters (Example: https://your-jira-domain.com/secure/ManageFilters.jspa) redirects to the login form. Saved filters, filter owner incl. mail adress will be protected.

    Accessing your JIRA dashboards (Example: https://your-jira-domain.com

    /secure/ConfigurePortalPages!default.jspa) redirects to the login form. Popular dashboard won't be shown to any anonymous user anymore.

    Next to popular filters and dashboards also the quicksearch and other content requests from your JIRA instance will be redirected to the login form.

    More details

    Dashboards and filters can be shared with anyone. This also includes users which are not logged in (the "famous" anonymous users). This issue is opend and discussed here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-23255

    While JIRA displays a warning message that such sharing may not have the intended consequences it is so far impossible for an admin to prevent the sharing or access without patching the JIRA source code.

    A second problem is the quick search which can also be executed by an anonymous user and depending on the settings in the projects may or may not show some issues.

    The "Prevent Anonymous Access" add-on prevent these redirecting any requests to the login form.

    There is also a configurable whitelist to allow specific requests without login, for example to integrate with other tools.

    This plugin complete screwed us up (7.3.1). - Crashed our gadgets - Forced integration with HipChat to be limited - Blocked JIRA from being a gadget feed for Confluence Hard to diagnose due to limited information in the logs and the fact that just disabling didn't fix anything. We had to completely uninstall and bounce the application to see everything get fixed Nice for what it did as JIRA should by default always redirect to the login page if a user is not logged in.

    This worked nicely for me with JIRA 7.1.4, thank you. I like the ability to whitelist parts of JIRA, but it's also a good way to find any integrations that expect anonymous access to JIRA.

    Works great after checking the "Rejected requests" page and adding appropriate whitelists. I was scared off by the low ratings, but the older reviews are out of date with the newest versions.

    Was really hoping this would work as the sharing model within Jira is really broken. If users share their filters with anyone it makes it so any anonymous user can gleam data from your system. Unfortunately this plugin breaks the integration with confluence (specifically if you are using Jira as the user directory you can't login after) but I'm sure there are other things that will break. The whitelist capability should be made configurable and also add the ability to whitelist IP addresses. This would make is much more functional and not break integrations.

    The whitelist has been made configurable with version 2.0. This should increase the chances that the add-on is useful in your case.

    About filtering based on the IP address: a nice idea which hasn't come to my mind.
