Is there a way to remove Components from a project?


Having a project team with a clear side bar ,without Components, is the goal here.

So you can have a screen with out components but still the project has this on the side.

The rest of the side bar is controlled by the Features setting, does anyone know how to accomplish this?


EDIT: sorry if this wasn't clear my objectives are due to the organization that deals with various levels of technical knowledge, so I often try to simplify things. Many projects in this organization are not using components and never will and I would like them to not see it in the side bar.

Hi @Sean ,

unfortunately you cannot remove Components from the sidebar. 

@Sean -

I agreed with what @Jack Brickey stated, one cannot remove "Components" listing from the side bar even if the project doesn't use it.  Components is a default functionality of Jira/JSM application in both Cloud/Server envs.

Since we can't remove the components on the sidebar, would you want to change the permission so people can not make edit to the components even if they see it?  Would that help to achieve your goal even though it's not ideal?

agree...understanding more completely your objective may lead to an acceptable solution.

agree too.  By default, only project Administrators role members can manage components in both Jira/JSM applications.

Best, Joseph

I don't think this would be possible on Cloud. You might be able to do it on Server\DC using ScriptRunner though.

Can ScriptRunner be run in Cloud?Because It is a frame?

Like Jira itself, ScriptRunner for Server is a very different application than ScriptRunner for Cloud.

SR for Server has a concept called "Script Fragments" that can, among other things, be used to manipulate the Jira UI, and I think could maybe hide things like the 'Components' menu option.

However the Cloud architecture doesn't give add-ons a way to get at this functionality; my guess is they were doing some pretty low-level hackery to make changes that are OK in a single-instance box but would never be safe\secure\scalable in a multi-tenant architecture.

Thank you,I often want to make some changes to the original UI of Jira Cloud like the title owner, and I'm worried about this!

I'd want to know why you are trying to remove components in the first place? This is a OOTB functionality, and can be used for many different reasons. 

We have a very large group of projects that are not using it.
