Adding a Secure Field

The Secure Fields plugin ships you with 11 custom field types which are distinguished by the fact that they may be given additional permissions. You can easily create any type of secure fields you want simply by logging to the JIRA's Administration page and choosing Fields > Custom Fields tab.

Clicking on the Add Custom Field button will redirect you to the table with all types listed. You just need to choose an Advanced type and select the Secure Field of your interest.

Edit Field Value

Permission to update a field value.
