The connector supports the Jira security model by indexing Jira item permissions so that in Coveo search interfaces, a user searching Jira content only sees the content to which he has access in Jira.
As shown in the following table, you can index all Jira Software permission types with the Coveo plugin (see Installing the Coveo Plugin for Atlassian Jira Software), except for Jira Software Cloud, because it is not possible to install plugins in cloud instances. Starting with Jira Software 7, a new Atlassian API allows the Coveo connector to index most permissions without the need of a plugin.
