Remove approvals section from Customer Portal

How can I remove the "approvals/approver" information so that the customer does not see this? We use approvals amongst our agents to approve when an issue gets escalated to another group on our team, so we can see this on our side (view issue screen), but we don't want customers to see this in their Portal. Is there a way to remove it from the Portal?

The highlighted sections in the following image is what we do not want the customer to see:

Hi Tiffany,

I'm sorry but I don't think it is possible. There could be plugin implemented which would remove these items because it looks like these information can be found in html by class approver-decision and cv-approval-status.

Thank you. I was indeed able to create a custom plugin that hides these elements.

Hi Tiffany,


Are you able to share the solution with me? We are trying to achieve something very similar and struggling!!

Hi Tiffany, I'm also interested. Please share.

Hello. I just created a custom plugin. In the plugin CSS, I just added things like .approver-decision {display:none;} and .cv-approval-status {display: none;}. Very easy!

Hi Tiffany,


Is there any chance you could share the plugin with instructions?



Hi Tiffany, 

I also have the same exact need. Did you create a plugin using the Atlassian's SDK? Could you provide more instructions on how you created the plugin, please? 

Thank you! 



I just followed Atlassian's documentation on how to set up a basic plugin. Then I went into the css file and added those snippets of code that I mentioned in a previous comment above. :)

Hi Tiffany, 

Thank you for the additional information! I really appreciate it. Have a wonderful day! 



Tiffany I Tried it but didn't work really.. any special trick required to build or include special module? Thanks

Hi Gil,

You won't find this plugin on Atlassian MarketPlace. This is a plugin that @Tiffany Owen  has made for itself.
