Issue Security Schemes

Issue Security Schemes helps you to manage the viewers of an issue. There are several security levels having groups/users assigned to them. While creating or editing an issue, the level of security can also be specified.

There is a Default Permission Scheme also that helps to set the permissions to any project. Any new project that is created is assigned as a Default Permission Scheme. Subtasks inherit the controls from their parent task.

Only JIRA admins can configure an issue security scheme in their project or task.
