Hi @Berry Kersten  ,

You can use script fragments to hide UI elements.


Go to Admin → Script Fragments, and select Hide system or plugin UI element  and select the project and UI elements that you would like to hide.

Hi @Niranjan great, thanks! Found it :-)

One more question, I don't see script fragments for the People and Dates panel.

Is it possible to add them manually that you know of?

Hi Berry,
Thanks a lot for your reply.
I tried exactly the same on a preProd instance. Then stop/start Jira. It doesn't work. Reboot the server, and it is the same.
We use Jira Server V8.5.5.

Do you think it is a problem ?

I'm not a Groovy guru, but in the condition, can you try !=  instead of == ?
