Anonymizing users for GDPR compliance
We’re giving admins the power to anonymize their users, hiding or deleting any data that can identify real people. Now, when somebody is leaving your company and requests to have their personal data erased, you can easily fulfill such a request and stay compliant with GDPR and the ‘right to be forgotten’.
You can anonymize users with just a few clicks. We’ll identify and show you any items in Jira that store users’ personal data, and give you a chance to proceed or back off. You can anonymize anyone, even some of your teammates on April Fool’s, but we highly recommend against it — once someone is anonymized, they’re anonymized forever. Learn more
