Can I disable Assign to me option?

Hello, everyone. Here is my thing. I strongly dislike any ing of ambiguity - and this often happends at JIRA.


For example: can I disable "assign to me" option? It really like appears twice on the same screen, which is bad usability by our standarts.


Thans in advance for any remark!

Assign and assign-to-me are two different functions here, so it's not "bad usability" as they're different.

Well, as far as I can see, they are the same as "assign" contains within itself "Assign to me" option, see:


No, they are different.  Assign asks you for a user to assign.  Assign to me is a shortcut to stop you needing to select yourself from the list.

OK, let it be shortcut :)

Do you know by any chance, can I disable it somehow (the shortcut).

I don't need my second-tier support to take issues before the first-tier anyway.

You would have to hack the template that renders this screen.
