The app provides security and protects your most sensitive data in Jira Cloud: the data within custom fields.


Use cases

We built this app to resolve typical problems/requirements that companies face when using Jira Cloud:

Company problem: I have to control which system has access to specific data.
Solution: Store the encrypted data in the Jira database → see Hosting options

Company problem: I have regulatory requirements.
Solution: Follow regulations by storing data in a secure database located in a specific region → see Hosting options.

Company problem: Data sovereignty is key for my company.
Solution: Store encrypted data in your own database (coming soon).

Company problem: I want to restrict who can view or edit sensitive data.
Solution: Set specific permission setting for any custom field → see How to set Confidential Field permissions.
