Secure Fields

This custom field type provides various secure field types. Jira administrators can create numbered, text, and date custom fields like Jira standard ones. After defining view and edit permissions in the context screen, users without permissions can´t see or edit the hidden information and will get a message that they are not permitted to view or edit.
