Hi Sunil,

If you never want the field to be seen, you can go to the Field Configuration for that project, search for the field and mark it hidden. 

Settings > Issues > Field Configurations

hi @John Funk field


I am able to hide the field, but how can i restrict the user to not unhide the field, i mean that i should allow only some users to hide/unhide the custom fields how can i achieve it

No, you cannot allow some users to hide a field and others not to hide it. It either shows for all or hidden for all.
