Hide UI worklog tab Edited


we want to hide the work log tab from activity panel (with all, comments, work log, history and activity) in the issue view.


I tried to use scriptrunner hide UI fragment but I can't find the right element.

I found the elements to hide the actions to create a new work log item but not the tab with the history.

We have Jira 8.13.6 and scriptrunner 6.3.0-p5.

Is it possible to do this with scriptrunner or somehow else?

Hi Erik,

If you want to hide the history / worklog tab in the Activity module on issue view, you could disable the plugin module as described here: 

If you want to do it only for certain projects/issue types, you could use Scriptrunner.

You could use a scripted field with the code below:

return """


#changehistory-tabpanel {

display: none !important;


#worklog-tabpanel {

display: none !important;





@Erik Buchholz , I just saw your screenshot. The script I posted should help you hide it.

Hi @Ioana ,

thanks for your answer.

Yes we want to hide it only in one project for certain users. So I modified your code a little and it works so far, if the field is in the right context and on the view issue screen.

Little disadvantage is that the field name is in the screen.


Do you know any disadvantages of this solution compared to the hide UI fragments regarding safety or performance?


Hi Erik,

I tried to figure out a way to achieve what you are looking for, but with no success.

I use a similar script into a scripted field, but its purpose was also to display some other information and not only to hide UI elements, so I didn't think of hiding the field from the screen.

The only option I can think of is adding the code into the Announcement banner, but that would apply the change to the entire Jira instance. 

I don't think there are any security concerns related to using this script, nor performance issues, as long as you have a context for the field so that it is not applied to all issues.

Hi @Ioana ,

many thanks for your answer! It guided me to a solution.


PS: I accepted your answer because the part with deactivation of the plugin module to do it global is right, as I didn't mention in the question that I just want to hide it under certain conditions.

Many thanks to @Ioana !

With your answer I found following solution:

With _show a web panel_ fragment I can use a condition with context of the project or issue and the current user. With the key I can hide the panel itself in the same way.



jiraHelper.project.key in ["TEST"]


#worklog-tabpanel {
display: none !important;
#remove-work-log-tab {
display: none !important;

Hi Erik,

I don't use the Server version of Jira but see if you can edit the Permission Scheme for that Project to change the Work on Issues permissions under the Time Tracking Permissions section of the permission scheme.

If the user does not have Work on Issues permission, they should not see the work log tab. At least that's how it works in Cloud. 

Hi @John Funk ,

thanks for your reply. Unfortunately in server this seams to be different. I removed all permissions but John Doe can still see the work logs.

The problem is that the users shall log their own work but should not see the work logs of the others.

We'll probably solve this by creating an issue for every user and hide the other issues.

Is there an option for View All Work Logs in server?

If not, your work around seems like the best route. 

Hi @Erik Buchholz

Could you please share a print screen of which worklog tab you are trying to hide?

Thank you and Kind Regards,


Hi @Ram Kumar Aravindakshan _Adaptavist_ ,

I added a screenshot to the question and tried to clarify that it's in activity panel.
