When you access your JIRA Cloud URL in your web browser, it defaults to and shows you a lot of details without prompting for credentials.

As a Cloud administrator, you need to immediately lock this down visibility to valid users only. 


Check the Project Permission scheme. The Browse Projects permission will include Group (Anyone).


  1. Edit the Permissions of the Permission Scheme(s) in question
    • JIRA Administration > Issues > Permission Schemes
    • Keyboard Shortcut: g+g > Permission Schemes
  2. Delete Group (Anyone) for the Browse Project permission 
    • It is advised to remove Group (Anyone) for any other permissions as well for safe measure
  3. To test, use the Browsers In-Private/Incognito Mode or open another Web Browser to load the URL of your Cloud instance; you should be directed to the login prompt
