See here how to remove it:
Dissable Jira Excel Plugin (

Thanks @Christian Happel  but this ad-in has been installed by my pc admin, i cannot remove it via the described by you way, i need this ad-in removed from my profile, if you don't know how this can be done, i'd kindly ask for contacts for the respective ad-in support.

I would assume you will need to ask your admin about that then.

I don't think this question belongs into this group, but anyhow:

When exactly do you get annoyed when that sidecar opens?

For example, if I close it via the X and open a new empty spreadsheet it isn't opened by default.

It only opens when I open a sheet in an Excel file that has Jira data in it - which in my opinion is good, because then I can refresh the data right away, for example.

It opens only for one specific spreadsheet, no matter how many times i close the window, it opens again as soon as i re-open the spreadsheet,

I am having this ad in since recently, never used it, not even logged in in my "jira cloud"

So all i'm trying to do is get rid of this window as i don't see any point in this window opening every single time, even if i had jira data.,

So please let me know of a solution of removing this side window, i'd be extremely grateful!
