Supress Edit Button

Guys and Girls,


I need to suppress the Edit button (top left) on JIRA for non admin users.

How can I do that?

Hello Bruna smile

Glad to see you again!


To suppress or hide the edit button from a non admin user you must take a look on the Project Roles permissions scheme and on the groups you designed to have permission for "edit issues" on the projects permissions.


To be more specific, Open your Cog Menu on the top right of your screen, click on projects > select the project you want to configure the permissions scheme and hide the edit button > on the left hand menu click on Permissions > Click on "Actions" and "Edit Permissions" > scroll down your screen until you find the permission "Edit Issues", on the right side of the screen click on "Edit" and add or remove what project role or group you want to have permission for this feature on JIRA.


Also you can take a look on our documentation regarding Project's permissions:


Feel free to come back if you have any further questions, I'll be glad to help you.

The "Edit" button will only appear if you have the correct permissions to do so based on your JIRA Project Permission Scheme. So you will have to check on what roles/groups/users are included in the "Edit Issues" permission and remove/add what you want smile

That's all handled in the Permission Scheme for that particular project.

You simply have to set the Admin project role (or jira-admin group, but I rather think using only project roles for permissions is better) as the only users who can Edit Issues.
