This features an addon for JIRA7 and onwards, that makes it possible to define which issue types are available (known as filters) for users and groups/roles in JIRA.
The plugin features both client side and service side enforcement of the filters. This is different to the Issue Type Filters plugin.
The filters are applied when:
The filters are applied on the dialogs, standalone pages, quick-forms (e.g. project and SCRUM view) and so on. But not by REST.
You can download it from within JIRA, or deploy the .obr found in Marketplace: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.yplugins.effective-issue-types/server/overview. Find the version for your JIRA version.
Install a proper license, you can just trial it before purchasing!
Do you need an extended trial version, just contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You will find setup of the plugin by going to Administration -> Issues -> Effective Issue Types.
