Is there a way to remove the "Classic..." menu item from the Agile menu?

I'm setting up a brand spankin' new instance of JIRA/GreenHopper for an organisation, and would prefer them not to know about classic boards in the first place, as this may be a source of confusion for new users.

Is there a way to do that?

Hi Chris,

You can achieve this by disabling the corresponding menu item plugin modules.

  1. Go to Add-Ons/Plugins
  2. Find GreenHopper in the list
  3. Click on the link that mentiones the number of enabled modules. This will expand a list with all plugin modules shipped with GreenHopper.
  4. Find following two modules and disable them: "greenhopper_menu_dropdown_classic", "greenhopper_classic_dropdown_item"

Hi Michael, I have a quick follow-up question. I'm in a similar situation to Chris, except we are using an onDemand instance. I see the modules you reference here and it looks like the 'disable' option is available; does that mean we can now disable these modules or is that a trap? Thanks!

Hi Haddon,

You are correct, ondemand customers can disable these modules too (one learns something new every day). I have updated the answer accordingly. Thanks!
