Please let me know if we can remove or disable the 'Assign' button form the View Issue Page.
We do not want the users to explicitly assign an issue to others. Only during the transitions the assign feature is required.
I tried removing the 'Assign issues' permission for the User group, but this disables the 'Assign to Me' button and more over cannot assign in the Create Issue page also.
Please suggest to only remove the 'Assign' button from the View Issue Page in Jira 4.4.5
Thanks for the response.
I have tried the steps given. However was not successful. I could not find the 'Manage Plugin modules' option when i clicked the 'Issue Operations Plugin'.
When checked the Webpage Error ( the alert icon at the left bottom corner of the page ).
Got the error message :
Webpage error details
Message: 'status-code' is null or not an object
Attached the screenshots.
The steps I gave you was for the 5.1.6 version of JIRA. Use the same concept but follow the documentation here
I figured i'd share my answer to this problem here as well so that it can be used by others as needed. This solution allows you to control when the buttons are removed, as well as remove any object on the view screen based on your script. I have expanded this solution to answer another users question who only wanted to display the transition buttons and also remove tabs from the bottom, so i know it can work for whatever you want to do:
I hope this helps someone else out as much as it has helped me.
Yeah, you have to put it in the Announcement Banner now. I used to be able to put it in the Description of the Components field or any other field that is displayed, but now those descriptions don't even get loaded and hidden in the view screen, they only get displayed in the Edit or Transition screens. Therefore, the Announcement Banner is the only place to put scripts like this anymore.
The solution from Adam didn't work for me on JIRA 6.3.8.
I realized that in the newer version, we have to do it differently.
I post my code here just for those who may need to do the same thing.
In the simplest form, the following will remove the Assign button and the Assign To Me link from ALL projects.
If we want the actions to be more specific to certain project, we should need to check for that within contentChange() funtion
Thanks to Adam for the code of contentChange() !
Hello - I'm wanting to do the same thing and please note I'm not as technical as all of you are :) I tried to put the script in the announcement banner and the whole script shows up in the banner and I can still see the Assign button. Can someone kindly direct me on what I may be missing?
It looks like Atlassian failed to decode their HTML encoding of the code blocks when they migrated from Atlassian answers to this new "better" community thing. Therefore a bunch of special characters were still HTML encoded in the above answers. I tried to fix my code, but may have missed some, so let me know if you still have issues with the above. One of the keys is that the code has to be surrounded by the <script> tags but the < and > symbols were replaced with < and > text, which then doesn't get recognized as HTML and will then just display the text as is.
