Create a data security policy

To set up a data security policy, you need to:

  1. Create a policy

  2. Select policy coverage

  3. Add a policy rule and activate the policy

1. Create a policy

To create a new data security policy:

  1. Go to admin.atlassian.com. Select your organization if you have more than one.

  2. Select Security > Data security policies.

  3. Select Create policy and give the policy a name.

  4. Select Create.

You now have an empty policy. Next, you need to add policy coverage and add a policy rule.

2. Add policy coverage

Covering spaces in a data security policy is currently only available through our Early Access Program (EAP).

To specify which products this policy should cover:

  1. Select Add coverage from the empty policy screen.

  2. Review the information about how to set up a data security policy, then select Next.

  3. Choose whether you want your policy to cover spaces (only available through our Early Access Program (EAP) or products, then select Next. You can’t undo your choice once your coverage is saved.

  4. Select the data you want to cover, then select Next.

  5. Confirm your data is correct, then select Save. You can return to update the data you’ve selected at any time.

If your policy covers spaces, you can select up to 15 spaces per product. Spaces can be selected from up to 15 products. If your policy covers products, you can select up to 30 products.

If you need to cover more spaces or products, you can create another policy. You can create up to 50 policies.

3. Add a policy rule and activate the policy

To configure a policy rule and enforce that security control on all spaces or products covered by the policy:

  1. Select the rule in Policy rules on the policy screen. Learn more about data security policy rules

  2. Configure the rule, then select Save.

  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for any additional rules you want to add.

  4. When you’re ready to enforce the policy, select Activate. It may take a few moments for rules to be enforced on the selected spaces or products.
