That button is part of an add-on, and we can disable the module responsable for that for you, but you need to be aware this will affect all the projects in your instance. Please raise an issue with us at https://support.atlassian.com if you want to proceed with that.
If you want it removed for all users, then I believe the only solution on a Cloud instance is disabling View ops bar assign link.
If you are using JIRA Server, you can try the solution described on How to remove the 'Assign' button from issues.
Thanks and regards,
Hi @Paula Silveira,
We need to do this as well and have the Cloud version. I worked with my administrator to try to Disable "View ops bar assign link" and it's not allowed (even as an administrator). This "Assign" button causes problems for us/ confuses our users. Is there another way to remove it or disable it?
the button removal via editing the XML file as described in How to remove the 'Assign' button from issues worked perfectly for me.
It basically disables partially the plugin.
I was wondering if there is any way to apply this modification only to certain projects.
More generally, if I have several projects, and some of them are configured to manage the Assign as transition, while others use the Assign as operation (the plugin button), is there any way to manage this scenario?
As per the informational banner in the KB: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/How+to+remove+the+'Assign'+button+from+issues
Also, please be aware that customisations done by directly modifying files are not included in the upgrade process. These modifications will need to be reapplied manually on the upgraded instance.
Therefore its generally not advised to make modifications as they will most likely be reverted on subsequent updates.
