Just released: New app Confidential Fields with Data Residency for Jira

👋 Say hello to bitvoodoo’s first Jira Cloud app: Confidential Fields with Data Residency for Jira! We are excited to have our first Forge app available in the Atlassian Marketplace since September 2022 🎉.

🏠 Data Hosting

We built this app to allow Jira Cloud users to host their custom field data in the Data Residency of their choice. Being located in Switzerland, bitvoodoo knows the struggle of (potential) Cloud customers who cannot host their data in their own country by default. We believe all customers should have a choice that makes them feel comfortable using Atlassian Cloud.

Decide where to host your Jira data

🇨🇭As a Swiss company, we are starting our offering with cloud hosting in Switzerland. We are very eager to add more hosting options in the future based on your requirements. Please contact us (see below)!

🔐 Encryption & access permission

Apart from the Data Residency option, Confidential Fields has two other main features:

  • It encrypts Confidential Field data with powerful AES 256 so that no unencrypted data can ever leave Jira.
  • It allows you to set view and edit permissions for Jira custom fields so that no unauthorized people can access the data.

Demo video

Here’s a short video demonstrating how to change the data hosting of confidential fields and how to set permissions for accessing confidential data.
