Hide fields for all users except few

vishal Rising Star Mar 16, 2021

Hello All,


I want to hide certain fields from all users except certain users, I can do this using behaviours at the time of issue creation but I want to do it even after issue creation, meaning those field values should not be visible in issue details to anyone apart for exempted list of users.

Is it possible ? If so help me with some possible solutions.

Hi @vishal ,

Unfortunately field level permissions don't exist in Jira.

A workaround might be remove those fields from the View/edit screen(s) and only show them on specific transition screens. Those transitions would then be blocked by workflow step properties to be only allowed by certain users/groups.

Besides that, you don't have any options to really hide fields based on users/groups. (that I know of)

Hey @Dirk Ronsmans ,

thought so, thanks for the workaround, let me see how can we accommodate it in original requirement.
