Looking for a way to improve security in your Jira instance? Check out these 5 great Atlassian Marketplace apps which can help you in achieving this goal.

1. GDPR (DSGVO) and Security for Jira

The introduction of GDPR rules caused some chaos in the IT industry. Thankfully, vendors came forward with solutions. GDPR app is exactly one of these. It allows you to get the user’s consent, manage the right to erase, find and monitor personal data (emails, phone numbers, credit card numbers, etc.) and anonymize the user’s data.

It also allows for monitoring access statistics and permissions, resulting in a clear history of who (and when) gave the user particular permission. Perfect for large instances with multiple admins.

2. Secure Fields for Jira

Secure Fields is a set of security-enabled Custom Fields, which allow hiding data from certain groups of users. The administrator can set separate field permission schemes (similar to standard Jira schemes).

The app allows users to set different permission schemes for viewing custom fields, editing custom fields and viewing history. Moreover, access from all data access methods is secured – there’s no way to view the field value via API.

3. Issues Toolbox

An app that allows (among the many) to set Issue Security level immediately, and not after the issue is created (a standard behavior for Jira). Based on the group or role the reporter belongs to, the security level can be selected automatically.

Regular expression-based security level selection is also possible, utilizing the group and/or role names. As for such inexpensive App, it’s quite a gem. It’s also updated relatively frequently.
