Create a data security policy

Data security policies are currently only available through our early access program (EAP). If you’re not part of the program, this feature will be available from June 2023.

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

  1. Create a policy

  2. Define the 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 define the policy coverage and add a policy rule.

2. Define the policy coverage

To specify which products this policy should cover:

  1. Select Add data from the empty policy screen.

  2. Review the information about how a policy works, then select Next.

  3. Select the products you want this policy to apply to, then select Next.

  4. Confirm the list of selected products is correct, then select Save. You can return to update this selection at any time.

A policy can cover up to 30 products. If you need to cover more 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 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 products.
