Add support for tracking third parties



    • We collect Jira feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.


      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Server. Using JIRA Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      When tracking issues from multiple third-parties, it would be very helpful if JIRA could track which third-party each user belonged to. With this information there is a lot that could be done:

      • provide security so that third-party users have more privileges on issues from their own company
      • extend the search interface so that users can simply search all of their own issues
      • similarly these users can now create useful filters such as 'my company's open issue'

      Ideally this company/third-party information would be collected in a secure way so that it can be relied upon.

      • require the user provide an email from the company's domain, and then verify it
      • require an administrative user from each company so that they can add and remove users

      I realize that some of this could be done as custom fields and workflows, but it would make sense to me for this to be a core part of the product. For example, on jira.atlassian.com, I'd love to be able to write filters such as "my company's unresolved issues". I also would really like to be able to edit issues created by my co-workers, and to remove ex-employees or reassign their issues to someone else.
