As far as I know you can't disable it via UI. It's the you're talking about I guess. Can be found in your systems plugin library (Bereiche der oberen Benutzernavigationsleiste).

Hello Wilhelm,

I don't seem to get those links in my user profile screen, can you please elaborate more about it? Perhaps you can attach a screenshot?

Looking forward for your reply. :)

I added a screenshot in first place, but I think its not possible to attach Files anymore. If you're logged in in JIRA and klick on the small arrow next to your name a menu containing these external links will appear.

Hey again, Wilhelm.

I' afraid that this is not possible to be done in the User Interface level. You need to go to JIRA code to customize it and disable those modules.

The only way to disable the menu items "About Jira" and "What's New" is to modify WEB-INF/classes/webfragment/system-user-nav-bar-sections.xml. Find the keys you want to disable ie "view-about" key and change state property from enabled to disabled.

When you are done, restart Jira.
