I have used behaviour plugin to hide comment field during workflow transition and it works as expected.

Hi Sumit, how have you done that? I mean is there a need to write a script for it or there are some config options that I'm not seeing? Need to hide a comment field on just one particular transition screen. Thanks a lot.

yes this can be easily achieved using behavior plugin on workflow transition. You can also try to use properties in workflow to disable the comment on specific transition but i like behaviour as a good option

Sumit, can you explain how exactly you do this using Behaviours? Do you need to use a custom script?

1. As for fields - you can just remove the field from the transition screen and user will not be able to use it during transition.

2. As for comment - you can add transition property that blocks permission to comment:


the same for attachment, but you can just don't add attachment field on transition screen. See details on

it doesn't work on transition screen.

I tried adding the properties like jira.permission.comment.user=denied

Jira 6.1.7


Still have a question about how to work with system attachment field using Behaviour Plugin ?
