We have created and applied a field security scheme to a project. In the Field security scheme, we are allowing access to one particular custom field to admin users and denying access to all other users. While searching for issues through Issue Navigator, Field security plugin hides that customfield for all users and visible for admin users. So far it is correct. But when we export the query result to a excel sheet, the custom field column is visible without values. When exporting to excel sheet, how can I hide the customfield column completely as per the defined field security rules ?

Hi Kicha,

You can get JFS sources after purchasing a license for sure. Will you be able to add this feature or not I can not really say.

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the reply. We have a strong requirement to hide the column as per Field Security scheme. The columns are visible on Export to Printable, Excel, on column selection and Bulk Edit. I understand that on purchase of commercial license, I would be entitled to the source code. Will I be able to meet my requirement by modifying the source? If yes, I would like to buy the commercial license and modify the source code to hide the column as per Field Security Scheme on export to any file format. I can share those changes so that those changes can be incorporated in future release.

JFS does not hide field columns, it protects field values (cells) only.
