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.
