Issue #335 resolved

Limit visibilty of jira comments

created an issue

Currently the jira comment that is created by scm manager is visible to everyone. This has two downsides:

  • external customers / non-technical people can see the comment, although they probably don't understand it or we do not want them to see it.
  • The comment triggers a email notification to all watchers, also external customers.

If we limit the visibility of the comment to a specific group, this would resolve these two items.

    I've implemented now restriction of comment visibility with project roles: 6e12e0e2. Could you please test the version 1.10-SNAPSHOT of the plugin?

    Install snapshot version of scm-jira-plugin:

    • Login in as administrator
    • Open Config->General
    • Change "Plugin Repository" parameter snapshot from false to true
    • Open Plugins
    • Install version 1.10-SNAPSHOT of scm-jira-plugin
    • Reopen Config->General
    • Change "Plugin Repository" parameter snapshot from true to false
    • Restart your applicationserver
